Ready for our closeup

On the left is the fireplace as seen when we viewed the house. We knew then that we'd want to try and strip the wood back to its original finish. Finally after 14 months, its ready to be stained! The plan is to stain it very dark similar to the kitchen floors while the interior shelving and drawer insides will be painted a dark orange/red. We had planned to strip the windows above the fireplace as well but in the end decided that it was better to paint them similar to the wall color.
