Building a Fireplace in the Livingroom

I have always wanted a fireplace in the living room. Finally in this house I got one!

One night my awesome hubby decided to start building it and the rest is history!

He made a wood frame and then clad it in MDF.

Then I primed and painted it white.

And then we waited....
Because Lowes always puts their electric fireplace inserts on sale after Christmas. They are usually $298 and we scored ours for $98!!

Are you ready to see what the space looks like now??

The fireplace totally changes the whole feel of our living and dining room!!

Please don't mind the massive satellite box on the mantel. I can't wait to get rid of that thing!

We really love this room now and we enjoy being here.
