Here is the finished product for the basement fireplace in our spec house. I LOVE how it turned out. In person the tile surround is soooo beautiful. The copper pieces are actually copper plated, and have an amazing shimmer in real life.
The rainbow arch from BEFORE, and the dark wood paneling.
We used the existing hearth, but tore down the brick arch, added the new white panels, and created a new tile surround. We also retrofitted the wall beneath with power, cable, and supports, to hang a flat screen TV.
