That's right, I said on.

Until recently, I had this ugly (or at least boring) thing for a fireplace.

So, over several months (I think I started last September or October) I built a fascade, and made myself this:




I'm much happier in my living room now.  We've only actually used the fireplace once in the last two years, so when my swirly design started to resemble flames, I thought that it when the perfect way for the fireplace to express itself since it never gets to perform its function.

For some reason I feel compelled to point out that the black line along the inside of the fireplace isn't an excessive amount of black grout (although I did consider doing it that way), it's strips of black glass.  You can see it better in this picture:




Edit to add the awesome photo from page four to the first page.

WOW! Absolutely spectacular. The green background was a really bold choice, and I love it.
