One of the features in our condo re-design that I have been most wanting to see is the wooden art around the fireplace and ceiling.
The warm wood that matches our floors will come up the fireplace wall and across the ceiling. The hope is to make this room very warm and cozy while still retaining the height and openness. We also wanted a way to link the two foci of the room (the fireplace and the TV/credenza).
I think these long wooden slats really meet all of my requirements and exceeds my expectations. I can’t even tell you how tedious they were to install (I’m glad I was not the one doing it), but it took 3 days! There are still some touch ups to do, filling the nail holes and painting the white wood and the front of the fireplace, but it’s pretty close.
Once the shelving is done on either side of the fireplace, I’ll update the post with a full front-on picture. Not too much longer until all the woodwork will be done!
