Fireplace Makeover Before and After

By now I'm sure you're wondering, how many fireplaces does this girl have? Well we have three in total, none of them wood burning. This one in particular is a giant beast from the 90's taking up a good portion of my living room - I actually wish I could rip it out but that's too big a job for me. In any case, this fireplace was part of my One Room Challenge back in October but I ran out of time to refresh the tile on the fireplace surround so here it is.

Here's a reminder of what the original fireplace looked like before the One Room Challenge.

Here's the demo.

I accidentally ripped off the drywall - so my tiler had to replace it - opps!

I picked-out this tile from Rona. As someone reminded me on Instagram, marble herringbone is a classic. So true. I love it.

Here's my little helper.

Here's the complete look.

I'm in love with these planters I picked-up at Homesense.

Now to get some pictures for those frames lol - no judgement
