A New Look For A Autumn Fireplace
Hi there, happy you could stop on by, Im always saying , dont be quick to throw a vintage piece of furniture to the curb. I had a vintage cabinet with the curved glass. Anyway when we had hurricane Irma it got totaled. I had it out on the screen porch and the wind was strong enough to push it over and move it about. So I did what I usually do I dissected it and stashed all the pieces away for future projects. As I was looking at my faux fireplace I began thinking wow! I could use the large wooden back and this will be my backdrop for the fire place!
I did some measuring, got it screwed onto the wall.
I gave the wood a worn down look with some light paint.
And there you have it! Last night I picked up a set of Edison lights and added them for fun.
The wreath I made from some ivy creeping around.
I made a rag garland added it to the top.
Added 2 metal pieces , filled with olive branches and wooden pumpkins.
The ragbow is all so simple to make.
By adding the wooden backdrop it seems to complete the look by adding depth. So dont be quick to toss out wooden pieces you just might be able to repurpose them.
