"Here she is! Our beautiful fireplace is now complete! The centerpiece of this project is our new @touchstonehomeproducts Electric fireplace that has proven to be amazing in the few days we have actually had it installed! We have used it everyday and even had the opportunity to test out the heat in the chilly mornings! The full tutorial for the fireplace install, shiplap wall, and mantel are all in my saved stories! Projects don’t always go completely as planned and there are now new things that need to be addressed (floors and crown molding are top of the list), but we seriously couldn’t be more happy with how everything tuned out!" - @houseofus
