89 / 365 New fire place – Before and After photos

Last week our living room looked like this:

then Ant phones from work and says, what do you think about putting the TV on the wall and getting a fire surround.

Now our room looks like this:

Today’s 365 photo

and I. LOVE. IT. 🙂

We spent the morning shopping for new ornaments; probably the best way to spend a morning, if you’re me! (not so much if you’re Ant!!) and I have to say, The Range just may be my new favourite shop.
It was hard to choose because there’s so much to choose from!

I can’t wait to start on our kitchen once the kids have gone away for the week on Easter Sunday.
It’s going to be a lot of work but I know it’s going to be totally worth it. I’ve been wanting to do something drastic with the kitchen for ages and I can now finally get it done 🙂

    That is beautiful! I have been thinking about putting a fire surround underneath our TV which is on the wall but I didn't think it would look right. You have proved me wrong! I can start pestering hubby to go fire surround shopping now lol

      We got the fire surround from Ebay. We won the auction at £22 🙂 I had been planning to get a brand new one from B&Q but I'm so pleased I checked Ebay first!
