Well, I made my Memorial Day (day off from work) count! I painted the wood parts: black for the fire surround, white for the trim and Bittersweet Chocolate by Americana for the mantel. I ended up going with a thicker piece for the mantel after seeing the mockup in place. I cut and painted strip wood to finish the rough edges of the tiles used for the hearth. The wallpaper on the fireplace wall won't be permanently attached until the house is nearly complete since I need to be able to access the wiring behind the chimney breast - so that's the reason for the poor fit along the ceiling and around the doorway. The artwork is <i>Plum Tree Panel III</i> by Rodolfo Jimenez printed on Art Canvas by The Crafty PC. I will frame it before final installation.
