You guys have been asking for some time now for the tutorial on our DIY fireplace mantel in our master bedroom & today is the day we are finally sharing it! This project was one of our FAVORITES we have ever done & I’m so excited to share it with you today. Well, actually… we are! This is one of Jose’s favorite builds that he has done in a while & he was excited to bring this to you so that you could build one in your home as well. Everyone needs a fireplace right?
Our 1800’s farmhouse has one original fireplace in it which is great. It’s in our front living room & we have yet to use it because… well, I’m scared. Maybe one day. In our back living room we have a gas fireplace, but the dream was to always have a fireplace in our master bedroom. What better time to do that than the winter time? A few months ago Jose took it upon himself to build an electric fireplace in our bedroom & we use it daily. It’s made our room extra cozy & warm all winter long. We also LOVE the insert that we chose & I love the look of it. I mean, it’s not the real deal, but for an electric fireplace it’s nice. You can find the insert that we used [HERE]. Want to see how you can make your own DIY fireplace?! Let’s leave that up to Jose… head to our farm blog [HERE] to see how Jose built it. Jose drew up the exact plans & gave all the details. Head on over to show him some love and help him celebrate this build!
I’ve styled the mantel many different ways, but today when I quick snapped these photos it looks like this. The cool thing about this mantel build is that there are two doors under that tapestry & you can open it up to our TV. The tapestry might seem in the way, but it has grommets at the top & we simply take the grommet off one of the screws on the door to open the doors, & place the grommet back on the screw when we shut the door again. Super simple! This little space in our bedroom isn’t quite “finished” but it’s cozy right now & I’m loving it.
I hope you guys enjoyed this DIY project & a look at our home today! There are many more DIY projects coming your way very soon for you guys! Thank you so much as always for stopping by the blog today & every single day to see what we are up to. You can see more behind the scenes of our life [HERE] on Instagram. Thank you all again! xx
