The Fireplace.. what can I really say, When I first moved in I put the TV above the fireplace as that was pretty much the only place that made sense.

After it was up I realized it was way to high to watch comfortably so I decided to rebuild it, I ripped out the old fireplace mantel and built the new one, framed out the wall I wanted wrapped it in Fireproof sheetrock, then covered it in some textured panels, you can see the progress below.

The new design has become a simple impressive art piece showing how grand it really is, just makes the room feel impressive while the overall work wasn't to difficult some projects just bring out the amazement of a room.
