Bedroom Fireplace-Part 2

Today I took the fireplace backboard and belt sanded the edges-with my husbands help.  I brought the piece in the house and fine sanded the rough edges-I am using balsa wood.  Balsa has become my favorite wood-it is very light weight and easy to work with.  Next, I Kilz the backboard and Friday hope to mix paint to match the fire place and then paint the backboard.  Then for the SURPRISE!!!

Bedroom Fireplace

Well, I am finally back at work: this time on the bedroom fireplace.  I needed a back bumpout behind the fireplace for a special project.  There are many more post to come on this fireplace.  Here are some photos:

This is how I glued the six boards together.  An angel was watch over me as I had the exact width of boards to do this project.  Julia Child would have been proud.

The board will be in the center of the back wall with the fireplace in front of it.  I can't wait for you all to see how I finish it-secret!!!
