Marble Tile Fireplace Surround + Family Room Progress

Hello there! I realize these updates are slow coming... I blog in fits and starts or not at all, and it's about all I can do these days. Life is busy and full, and happy, regardless of what the progress in the house decorating category is, but I've got a few quick pictures to share. 

We finally finished our fireplace tile! We went with a carrera marble subway tile on the fireplace surround and a large carrera  rectangle on the hearth. We love finally having it finished, it turned out just how we hoped it would! 

Here's what it looked like before:

Whole Family Room Before:

In Progress (I have a hard time calling it an "after" When it's not finished):

  We still have a long way to go, but I'm not feeling as impatient as the "old me" would have. At this stage in my life, I'm learning to just "let it be" a little more than I used to. I put the gallery wall up in January and it makes me so happy to have family pictures out again after spending almost a year in boxes! I'll share a close up after I get it completed, I'm waiting on some more prints and need a few more frames (I have some blank pieces of paper up as place holders in the mean time).

I have more updates to share, we painted the front living room, started searching for new countertops and have a few more things in the works too!
