House update: Fireplace (delayed)

Our new fireplace!

I LOVE making old things NEW again! One of my fav bricks is the Old Bessemer Grays found in Mountain Brook, Vestavia and Homewood. I can spot them a mile away! When my dad was build their "newest" homelast year they decided on Old Reds for the exterior and these Old Bessemer Grays for the fireplace. So, when asked I of course wanted the scraps---He was generous enough to share with me.

Here's a link to a company in Birmingham that salvages wood, bricks and metal from old mills and other structures across the Southeast.

Pretty Cool!
