This is before (and right after the wedding, note the pink flowers on the stove). Also note, that I do not miss that stove. The handle fell off every time you opened it, and i detested it.
And here it is today! (I love it, it's clean steel i think, it doesn't show fingerprints!)
Note the light is on inside, and it is SO clean. i refused to clean the old one because i hated it so much!
If you can also remember, or if you are new, we did some more work on our living room--mainly on the fireplace. It wasn't hideous (well, the mantle was--it looked like a piece of driftwood that someone just set there) but it took up too much room, and wasn't really our style.
Here is was before we touched it:
After we removed all the bricks.......
and now......(please note, matt damon is on my tv....)
I loooove the tile, but not so sure about the trim around the fp. I hate the speakers there, but i wasn't given a choice on that part, lol. BUT--what a difference it makes to the whole room. It's feels more warm and homey. (Let me add this to say that we DO NOT USE our fireplace, nor will we ever which is why we decided to put the TV there.)
So, i will leave you with one more thing today. I bought some water from target, and this is what I found inside.....
A PIPER! :)
