The basement remodel project has been progressing along hence my absence lately on the blog. The remodeling portion of the project is complete, waiting on the new sofa and coffee table now. The furniture won’t be arriving until January. I am breaking up the reveal into sections that I will post over the next couple of months, starting first with the fireplace makeover.
The fireplace started as a simple builder grade model with 8″x8″ white ceramic tile surround and hearth. And a golden oak mantel that we had painted a cream color. It was simple enough that it didn’t drive me crazy. I knew that when we replaced the carpet, I would have the opportunity to change the tile around the fireplace at that time.

I love how the fireplace turned out. You even get a preview of the new baseboards and carpet. What are your thoughts? Do you like my decision to go with marble slab verses tile?
