Fireplace Surround

Happy New Week.

I wanted to share with you a new treasure I came upon this weekend.

I miss having a fireplace especially in the winter months.  This tiny cottage house did not come with one :(.   I found this sweet fireplace surround while out treasure hunting this weekend.

The black mantel will be replaced with a wood mantel or possibly painted white and chippy. 

The cream stone will be painted cottage white.

Not sure yet if I will leave the opening and hearth black or if I will do something different with that just yet. 
I  need to put on my thinking cap on this one.


Here is an inspiration picture found on Pinterest of adding sweet candles and an old framed mirror to the opening of the fireplace.

In this inspiration picture they added the candles and then put an old window in the front.

I like this idea of adding birch logs and greens with some white lights.

Lots of good ideas running around in my head.




I am excited it fits on this wall in my living room.
 It will add a nice cottage fireplace to my decor.

Stay tuned as I re love this piece into pretty.

I found some great candelabra's and an old mantel clock that hopefully will look very pretty on the new mantel.

Have a good week.


Hugs,
Kris

  4. Kris, I am laughing...girl your tools have not even cooled off from your last jobs. I will say that fireplace looks to be made for that wall. :) I know you will love it into a beautiful piece. Can't wait to see the end results. Blessings, xoxo, Susie

  5. Hi Kris, I love your ideas for the new fireplace! You have given me lots of inspiration for what to do with our wood burning fireplace in the spring. I was just thinking about how I enjoy the warmth and life the fireplace seems to bring to our family room in winter, and how it's just a blank black hole for the rest of the year. I can't wait to see what you do with yours.

  6. Wow, wish I could find one. I've been tempted to buy one of those electric fireplaces. I've been looking online for some time now at those.

  9. Wow Kris what a find!!! Such a treasure that I know you will transform beautifully for your home. I like them all, but I love the unusal use of the window frame. It's really unique and makes a great fireplace screen with the candles in back of it. Great conversation piece too! Good luck!

  11. I am really excited about this Kris. I love the ideas you shared. I have been thinking of adding a fireplace in our bedroom.

    We are digging out. Not so much snow, but the wind was so powerful, we are drifted in! Schools closed today so we all can dig out.

  13. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Having a mantle to decorate is a good thing in any cottage. Have a blessed new week

  14. LOL I found a vintage Christmas card box. I think that was easier to haul home than your mantle but not nearly as cool.

  15. Looking forward to seeing your choice and how you do it. I personally like combining the white birch with lights and a window in front!

  21. Ooh...pretty! I love the lights, greenery and birch logs. I might have to use that idea in my own fireplace this summer. I love a roaring fire, but off-season, I hate that big dark hole! xo

  22. Great score on the fireplace and loved your inspiration pics. Love you couch...but I hope you won’t mind me saying your room looked bigger with the couch against the windows. I didn't find they distracted from how beautiful the windows are. But each of us must find the best ”look” for our homes. I applaud your effort to find the best fit for your living area! You are so lucky I have two fireplaces or I would have snatched that up! I'm looking for one for the cellar since I'm converting that into our ”family” room! Boy is that going to take a lot of work!

  25. Hi Kris! After the winter we are having, your new fireplace will be a most welcome addition! I'm looking forward for you and Terry to work your magic with this piece. Jane

  26. It's beautiful already so I know it will be even more so when you finish. We don't have a fireplace either here, the first time we haven't in 50 years. I miss them so much and we're considering putting a free standing pretty wood or gas log stove in before next winter.

  30. WOW, Kris- What a great finishing piece for that room!!!! Is that on the wall where you had the Christmas tree at the girlfriend's party? It looks like it fits perfectly..and really adds a lot of oomph to that spot. I can't believe the deals that you run across! I bet that devil was heavy to unload and get into the house!

    Have a great day as you prepare for your upcoming surgery. Love to you-xo Diana

  31. What a fun find. I know you will have it looking darling as soon as you are up on your feet again. I've looked for an antique mantel for my room for years but at this stage, if I bring something in - something has to go. I hope you are well.

  32. Oh Kris,
    what a great find! I am so excited to see it all done and dressed up!

  33. You are the true energizer bunny Kris, and you ALWAYS find the best treasures!

    I love all the options, but my personal preference is for the birch logs. It seems to be not only pretty but far more practical than turning on or lighting a bunch of candles.

    Good luck with your surgery ❤️
