If you ever wanted to know the definition of eye-sore, look no further than this fireplace. It is literally hurting my eyes. And soul. It pains me deeply. Obviously something needed to be done about it, and there was clear need for some storage in the room too. Thankfully Kara came along and rescued it with paint, cabinets, a wall-length mantle, not to mention a huge helping of fresh n’ hot style. Behold!
Notice the glimpse of the kitchen in the edge of the picture? Well, that got a makeover too. How genius was it to extend the hanging shelf all the way to the counter to define the space, yet not close it off by keeping it open? Did that sentence even make sense? It’s early.
