Fireplace Makeover: Phase 2 (Installation)

Pin It

Here is Phase II of the fireplace makeover. Phase I was demolition. Phase II was installation of the new high-efficiency fireplace insert and cabinetry. Here is the insert...all shiny and new...

Here are pre-built cabinets we installed on either side of the fireplace for added storage of media components, firewood, and display...

Let's recap, shall we?...

   Before               Phase I: Demolition             Phase II: Installation

Stay tuned for...
Phase III: Construction

NOTE TO READER: You didn't think I'd show you the final project already, did you? No, no, no, my little grasshopper. You have much to learn. Only 12 more phases to go. Kidding! I think I'm kidding. I haven't actually counted the phases. Man, I hope you can sleep this week with all the anticipation! 


  1. amy,
    the suspense is killing me! lol i just know it's going to be super awesome.
    judi ;)

  2. Hi Amy,
    Been there done that (lol)! Don't you love when you get to start putting stuff back in, rather than tearing it out? Can't wait to see the finished product!! I'm sure it will be gorgeous! :)
    Thanks for stopping by today, and thanks for your sweet comment about my bathroom makeover! You've made my day. :)
    Hugs ~ Jo

  5. On pins and needles over here-can't wait to see the end result!

  6. Hi Amy....CAN'T wait for the final reveal....!!

    I just want to add that I ADORE your sliding door....WOW...I would just LOVE to do this in our home but our place is too small....I wonder if Mr SVJ would be open to selling THIS place so we could buy a BIGGER place so I could undertake a sliding door project of my own....hahahahaha....!

    Cheers from Australia,
    Tamarah :o)

  7. Like I said before...you are truly evil!!! Making me wait!! How could you??? HA!

  8. I feel as if I'm watching episodes of Project Runway or something. I should admit that I often just wait for the marathon day with those shows and catch it all in one fell swoop. Should I do that here?

    Nah. I'll keep coming back for little morsels. Suspense is fun.

  9. 12 Phases!!! Oh... Ok... your just kidding... LOL!!! I thought that was funny!! :)


  10. Phase II...lookin' good! However, I would re-think the idea of storing wood in your cabinets...

    I am having visions of termites undoing all your hard work...ouch

    munch, munch...

    Keep the postings coming...can't wait til the end.

  11. Ahhhhhhh, I'm trying to be patient!


Life whispers...what is it saying today?
