Bless This Mess

So now that we have to wait 3 weeks until our tiles arrive to finish the fireplace it looks like we are stuck in limbo with this mess. We want the fireplace hearth completely tiled and grouted before we even consider doing the floors, however we have already removed the wall paper, patched the dry wall, primed, and painted all the walls. I also picked up this amazing antique mantle piece at my favorite local antiques store. It was a bit pricier than I had hoped, and I am going to paint out the cream detail in the middle to match a grey hue in the marble, but it is seriously the perfect dimensions for our fireplace and fits like a glove!
