Crown Jewel

 As my grandma always says, "to each his own."  But whoever thought that covering up a brick fireplace with 12 x 12 black tiles would look good was wrong!  

Had the previous owners just left the brick exposed, we simply would have painted it and gone on.

Since painting was not a option, we decided that we would cover the hearth with stone and then sheet rock the rest.

Rich and Nathan laid the stone. 

Adam helped with the sheet rock.

Now Papaw is putting on the crown jewel!  He is building the mantel, and came over today with the prototype to double check size and measurements.  I cannot wait to see the final product!  I am so lucky to have all these handy men in my life!
