Hello Again my Beauties!

I have such a fun DIY project for you today.

As I have been mentioning on Facebook

I decided to do some FAUX know..


Let me start this project by Reminding you what the fireplace

I was going to be making over looked like in the beginning.
Way back in my blogging career I made over this Goodwill Fireplace.

I loved scoring this electric fireplace and mantel for only $79

and making it the center point of my living room.

But as much as I loved it, I always felt that it felt DISCONNECTED

from the room.

I had gone back and forth on what I wanted to do

but could just never make a final decision.

I had toyed with faux brick but thought it would look weird only doing a small section above the fireplace.

Then after multiple episodes of Fixer Upper

I decided to do a simple shiplap style backing.
So over the years, this is how it looked (all the decor had already been taken down before I remembered to take the picture)

I started with my blank slate to prepare for my shiplap.

To see all the photos and the full tutorial just hop on over to my blog

I have lots more makeovers coming up so stay tuned

for more DIY in the coming weeks.

Until next time,

Go make someones day BEAUTIFUL!
