Now, turn on the light!...

  1. The fireplace is just gorgeous and what a thrill to have all that storage too. I love it. Now your pictures are so clever. I loved the light too. Hugs, Marty

  2. How the heck did you get your pictures to do that!?

    And that makeover is to die for!! Great work :)

  3. Absolutely love your new fireplace, especially those cabinets! I have been wanting to do something different to our fireplace but hubby likes it the way it is. He usually doesn't care what I do with the house but not sure he will budge on this one!

  4. Wow, I love it and I love the chairs! Now you are going to have to tell us all how you did that with the pictures, so cool!

  5. amy, you and ron have such vision! i love what you have done...you two are amazing.

    can you stop by and give me some ideas? we're in the midst of a bathroom gutting/reno project (with some rotted flooring). one never knows what will be uncovered!

    look forward to more pics!
    judi ;)

  13. Last time I commented about how I liked your lighting. I just now realized that those are speakers!! Ha! Way cool!
    Love this makeover!

  14. I love it when you do these little clicky transformation posts. I'm such a kid.

  15. Looks great. I really love the built in look. Those chairs are awesome...did you recover them? I may have read it and not realized it, I was so busy looking at the awesome pictures.

  16. What a beautiful transformation. But I must know... Where are those chairs that sat in front of the old fireplace? I'm SO in love with them!

    Congratuations and many thanks for all that you share. You are inspiration indeed!

  17. Amy - What a great transformation! And that piece of salvaged architecture on the mantel is just gorgeous! Love it with the sailboat. Makes me want to take down my mirror and look for something interesting like that....

    Great job!!
