Angélique Jarrier showed us how to make these amazing wings a few weeks ago on the blog, but she did not stop there with her clever creative ideas…she decide to make a fireplace. Yes we said MAKE one! Her home did not allow for a real one, so what does a create person do??? They create one of course. A touch of white paint, a little wood, simple mantel decor and the entire space looks fresh and fun. This post will give you some assembly steps to create this very simple project using only essential equipment and some Tattered Angels Decor and DIY Paint.
I’ve always dreamed of having a beautiful fireplace in my house, but for security reasons it is currently impossible. So I made the choice to incorporate a decorative ‘fireplace’ to my home. I did a lot of flea market shopping to find an old fireplace, and once I found my treasure I took time to re-look at my decorative ‘taste’.
Tattered Angels – Decor & DIY Paint- Sterling
Tattered Angels – Decor & DIY Paint- Crystal
– Wooden discs
You can paint a fireplace you already have, make one with parts you find at the hardware store or salvage yard or look for one at a local flea market that is already put together.
Tattered Angels Decor & DIY Paint is great for painting a found piece of wood, finished wood or raw wood. No sanding, no priming, no top coat, no wax – just simple…unlike the Milk and Chalk paints on the market. We suggest a thin coat of your chosen color and let it dry and then paint your second coat and you should be done.
Objects that are very dark being covered with very light paint might need one more coat, just make sure to let each coat dry before you apply the next.
If adding real fire wood or a gas outlet is not an option, think outside of the box and try something different, like wooden discs in the main section of my fireplace.
You can buy them or cut your own. Glue them to a wooden or cardboard backing spacing them randomly for a great look. Leave them natural or paint them.
I then applied the Tattered Angels Decor & DIY Paint – Sterling as my finishing color, and I brought shade to it with Decor & DIY Paint in Crystal.
Add a few candles to the base or keep it simple.
