We finished our basement a couple of years ago. To help save on costs we tried to do a few things ourselves. My husband put the floor in my craft room, I ran the wire in our media room and we had always “planned” on doing the tile on the fireplace ourselves…
that was 2 years ago..
The fireplace sat for 2 years. I think we got so used to it looking “undone” that we didn’t even notice it anymore.
Right after the room was finished it looked like this… Those are my cute nephews in the photo… it stayed like that for a few months.
Slowly, very slowly I’ve been putting this room togther. A couple of weeks ago we finally did the tile around the fireplace!
My husband did the tile, he had never done tile before, but it did not turn out to be too complicated.
I could not be happier with how it turned out!!
