We FINALLY bought a frame for it, and then I very nervously installed hanging wire on the frame (it's a long, boring story), and now, I would like to present the only actual art hanging on the wall in our house.
But first, may I present you with a before picture. The before picture is very sad. It is simply a fireplace (and yes, I am aware that my fireplace screen is beyond hideous). With bricks that extend allll the way up the wall. We're not the hugest fans of the brick, and included in our upcoming projects for this particular area are a mantel and a new fireplace screen.
And now .... AFTER!
Hot Damn! What is that? Murray wants to know.
Here's a closer look at the photo:
