Ever wish you had a fireplace in the kitchen? I do.
I would love a fireplace in every room of my home.
To me, a fireplace is a sign of comfort, family and home. It reminds me of happy days in my childhood arriving home in a snow storm and having my mom and dad together with a roaring fire all ready for us to sit beside. I guess you could say it is nostalgic for me. So…
While shopping at our local thrift shop…I spotted in the corner a basic, white fireplace mantel. I ran over…ripped the sticker off the mantel…and rushed to the cash register. I purchased the mantel for $40. I had no idea where I was going to place this mantel but you have to act first and think later (sometimes). I had to make arrangements to leave the mantel at the store because I had walked there & could not possibly have carried it home with the triple stroller.
Some inspiration photos below…
The “bare” mantel placed in our kitchen…
I will have to move the mirror now because the scale is off. I am already planning a sunburst mirror that I would like to make to hang over the fireplace. I am ahead of myself. Step 1: design the fireplace! Any suggestions on how to make this the mantel of my dreams?
Stay Tuned for the finished product!
Thanks for visiting.
