Fireplace Remodel. Removed ugly Lava rock!! Added Subway tile for surround and hearth. Added pine tongue and groove planks horizontally across the top half. With 3x4 pine trim and crown molding. Added plywood and 1x2 trim along the bottom. Built a 3 sided pine box which we distressed to look like a timber for our mantel. Just have to add the trim along the hearth outside edges and we're done!!
Plywood Floor Painted White….Photo from “For The Love Of Home” Remember, you can dress up plywood with a variety of stains and polyurethanes- paints if you’d like (but plan on seeing chipping and them later needing retouching)- and after that, you’re DONE! No killing your knees installing expensive hardwood tongue and groove flooring, and no paying for those floors either!
