A handcrafted library: before and after

What a transformation! This fireplace went from from something basic and functional, to a beautiful focal point in an elegant, luxurious room.

Here is a better view of the "before":

And here is the after:

The handcrafted mantle and woodwork are by "Kitchen Kraft Inc." Field tiles are by "Equipe." The feature tiles are my "Birds on a branch with 1" border," and "Diagonal Tree of Life, 6"x6," all in spearmint glaze.

Thank you so much, B.F.M., for including my tiles in your fabulous project, and for taking the time to share pictures! I love-love-love before and after photos!
