Painted Fireplace Insert ~ Step-by-Step Tutorial

We may have a sloth’s pace when working on our home, but not by any decision of our own. The key is we get it done. Folks, we are so close to wrapping up our family room remodel that I’m brimming with excitement. For one, it will feel good to be done. Two, I need my house back! haha. Stuffing the contents of the biggest room into the other rooms of your home is not so fun. However, we are appreciating the home we do have. With that, I’m sharing how to update your fireplace insert with a painted fireplace tutorial. Here is said fireplace in question…

DIY Coffered Ceiling with Antique Barn Roof Shingles

The time has come for me to share with you the beginning of our family room remodel and the continuation of how we are making our house our home. There is not doubt that owning a home is an adventure and such a blessing. Never did I think we would be here for 15 years, but happily here we are. My goal today is to share with you yet another journey, update you on our past projects, and invite you to learn how to create your own DIY coffered ceiling. (so many have asked!) Let the fun begin…

Truthfully, I hadn’t intended to post much about our next room adventure until our kitchen was complete. If you are new around here, we are wrapping our our 2.5 year kitchen/dining/laundry remodel that began HERE. We did take last summer off to work on numerous outdoor projects too. Since what I am able to help with in the kitchen completion has been on pause, I decided it was time to jump-start our other room – the family room.

The story of our journey really began in 2003 when we bought this house and began the first remodel. Here is peek at the family room we saw when we moved in.

Pine paneling, old Berber carpet, and open fireplace with built-in bookshelves unseen. You can even still see the drop ceiling just above us. Boy, hard to believe my oldest was a toddler and I was expecting our second baby.

Affordable Area Rugs to Fit Any Decor

If you know me, then you know I am all about making our house a home affordably. It makes no sense to me to spend big bucks on something when you can get the exact same thing for less elsewhere or make it yourself. Problem is, knowing where to find those deals. That hunt can take time and time is money. Thankfully, I was able to enhance my family room by adding a rug, and I want to share with you the affordable area rugs I found. PLUS, I have a giveaway! eep!

Enter in our family room… this used to be a detached garage. Bet you’ve never seen a garage look so good! If you follow along, you know that last week I shared with you how on a whim I decided to give my fireplace a makeover. The view I’m about to show you is to the left of that same fireplace.

In the future, I will show you the true before as a few years ago I did three coats of paint and stain-blocking primer to this room, tore down a drop ceiling, and made my pallet shutters and barnwood & bedskirt valance. (both have tutorials) I even got the entertainment center for free from a guy who was originally going to charge me $100, but told us we could have it if we would take his projection TV’s. Deal! Serious praise is that most everything in this room was received for Read more
