Our Fireplace

You already know this – my husband rocks, literally – as in he puts up rock!  (he he)  We used some Christmas money to buy the rock to finish off our fireplace.  WOO HOO!  I love how it looks.

It’s actually fake rock (matches our fake gas fireplace?!?!?).  I think it’s like El Dorado Stone or something.  I’m not really sure, but we had to special order it.  Anyway, he did an awesome job.  Don’t you think?  That husband of mine is amazing!  Now we can finish the baseboards next to the fireplace too.  We didn’t want to put those in until we knew exactly where the fireplace rock would start.

At some point, we will buy a TV to go in the hole.  A lot of people thinks it’s wierd we didn’t make the hole bigger for a big screen TV – but we really wanted to to be symmetrical with the fireplace.  Is that so odd?  I think not!

Next up is the backyard…..

    Still working, I see! I only think that the projects will stop once we move in 🙂 Hope y’all had a merry Christmas! And have a happy new year, too!

    looks great! We need to book him to come do tile in our bathroom floors… 🙂 That has to be easier than rock!

    I think the fireplace looks awesome. The rocks sure look real, for being fake. I suppose they aren’t as heavy? Anxious to see it in person.
    Love you all,

    I’ve just discovered your site and this post. My husband is wanting to do this very thing in our family room. He went to Lowe’s looking for the “fake” rock, but can’t find it. If you don’t mind, can you email me and let me know where you ordered it from? Thanks! 😀
