Only about a month before Ana published her Christmas plan for a faux fireplace, the hubby and I built one of our own out of a sheet of quality plywood, 1x12's, crown moulding, and a little trim. Originally we simply wanted a place to hang our stockings over the holiday season, but now our HUGE faux fireplace is the HEART(H) of our home.
Wow...that's gorgeous! Nice attention to detail, too! Just a suggestion...have you considered painting the inset of the "fireplace" black? I painted the inset of my fireplace with a flat black paint and it made ALL the difference in the world. Just something to consider. Either way, job well done!
Thanks so much! Would you believe that I am not as brave as I would like to be when it comes to painting anything black? We are planning to have faux logs made and stacked in the faux fireplace! We think that will do the "trick"--pardon the pun :o) Thanks again!
Have you considered trying a faux marble paint treatment? Or, marble-look wallpaper might be a little more fail safe and could even be applied in squares like marble tiles.
I love the proportions you chose. I think a foundation would really sell it, and would increase the safety if using candles.
How deep is your fireplace?
Do you have the plans for your fireplace? Love your design and clean lines, I am planning to make one!
Love this fireplace, very beautiful but very disappointed that there isn't any plans and just pictures lol a little bit of a tease.
Congratulations for your talent! I've seen some of your projects and they are great. I've just renovated my house as I had a lot of cockroaches and the cost of pest control service was too high. I've also decided to change the interior design and I made by myself some pieces of furniture as I wanted to create something unique. I like very much your fireplace and I think that it would be perfect for my living room. If you could post a project it would be perfect!
Your faux fireplace is amazing will you please post a project plan. I've been wanting to make one just like yours.
I am so sorry I have not responded sooner, but I wasn't even aware that there were any recent comments on this post :o)
Now that I do know, I just wanted to let you know that I will try to get something drawn up and post it here. I am not entirely well suited for design drawing software, but maybe you all wouldn't mind if I literally draw them out for you and post pictures of those drawings, yes?
Thanks for your kind comments, and I promise to have something soon! This project really is so simple, I just know you'll love the finished product :o)
Please post drawings for this with dimentions!
I apologize for the delay, but we have been out of the country for six months and don't have any way of knowing the dimensions of the faux fireplace without measuring it personally. But we will be home within the next few weeks and I will try to measure and draw up some simple plans for those of you would like to see them.
You`ve done a great job.We did redecorate our new home too.We moved a few months a go from London to USA.We had to search for a International moving companies so we had some problems but in the end we found one and took only a few things to our new home and we did the rest of the redecoration by ourselfs.
I love this room, do you know who makes the paint and what the color is called?
Thanks so much! Great job on the fireplace!
That's a great looking house , I am also dreaming about something like that. Unfortunately I recently had some bugs and hat to call bed bug services. So, right now, all my furniture is destroyed.
That room looks really nice, I wanted to have a career in interior design and it's clearly visible that the decoration was made by a professional.
Very nice design and I really like the idea of a faux fire place. To go through all all that trouble before Christmas is pretty amazing but the results is a nice place to hang stockings from. Congratulations.
