This past fall, I shared the reveal for our One Room Challenge living room makeover, and was getting so many questions about the fireplace mantel and how we got the look. I loved this style for a while, and loved the idea of it made from concrete. I drew out the design for Steve in the morning and he left to go get all the supplies to make a mould. This would have been his first time ever making something out of concrete, and after talking it over with my grandfather (who’s done it a bunch of times) he decided it would be a really tough piece to try on his first attempt.

It feels like so long ago that I started dreaming up ideas on how I planned to redo our once bland living room, and am glad I took all those before pictures to remember exactly what it looked like! Remember that door that made the room so hard to layout, and all that beige?!! I wasn’t sad to see either of them gone! And here is the finished product!! It really hardly looks like the same room! The only thing that is from the existing room is that vintage vent cover! I love the depth that the Metrie wall mouldings add to the… Read more »
