Fireplace love.

For Ben's birthday, I decided to get him a reclaimed wood wall.
How romantic, right?
I knew he'd love it...and he does!
I'll post pictures of that later. :)

But then, I asked Dan the wood guy about redoing our fireplace.

This was the before:

I pulled down the trim from the mantle and found this:
Bright blue.
Proof from her wilder days...
like the bizarre tattoos I see in the gym locker room.

I painted the brick:

And Dan, of Rustic Timber Designs, got to work!
I gasped when I saw our new mantle!

Love. Love. Love. Love. Love!

Here's the side-by-side:
