Great job of modernizing that. The fireplace in my livingroom looks similar to what you started with. There's a good chance I'll use this thread as a template for when I get around to that project.

Don't worry. It only lasts until they're about 17 or so.

- Ordered a set of Stoll fireplace doors.
- Clear coat (Benjamin Moore Stays Clear) on the mantel.
- TV re-mounted (man I love that IR repeater)
- Wife buying "decor" for the now empty mantel.

Once the doors are in I will declare this thing DONE.

Great work! Want to come over and do mine?

How is the height of the TV for viewing?

No issue with tv over a working fireplace? i would guess the doors help, is it wood burning and going to be used?

View angle is great but then again the couch is a good distance away.

It is currently a wood burning FP. We have some LED candles in there now. Been in the house 5years and have never used it.

Wow, this is great! It is so impressive to see the project from start to finish! I have to show my brother this, he has been trying to figure out where to put a fireplace for 10 years now. I think he should get started!
