NEW Fireplace and Built-ins!

I just moved into my first home. 103 years young! The fireplace was not functional and was this weird shape so with the help of some friends I tore out some of the old brick and shortened/widened it. I had to cut out a groove in some brick and slide a square tube from end to end to support it while the mortar set. I got some cool slate looking tile from Home Depot and created a new surround. I really love wood so after I made some cabinet carcasses I made some countertops and floating shelves to line the wall. My first time making a bowtie and a cool little passthrough for cables that I could plug the cable box into. I forgot to photograph it but I had my dad come and cut a line in the brick above to run wires to the tv as well. I think it looks amazing for the space even if the room is a little small.

Looks really nice. What happened to the mantel in the second photo?

I thought I liked the rustic beam look until we put it up. It was actually one of the hardest things to try. It was a 6x6 used railroad tie from a a big box store that we had to cut down to proper size... and didn't even use it lol.

Great transformation! We really like the contrast between the light cabinets and the dark wood.
