Faux Fireplace

We needed a place to hang our stockings this Christmas, and Ana's Faux Fireplace was the perfect solution. We added the chalkboard paint for a touch of whimsy.

Built from Plan(s)
Estimated Cost
$50.00
Estimated Time Investment
Afternoon Project (3-6 Hours)
Type of Wood
pine
Finish Used
Flat yellow paint for mantel, and black chalkboard paint for fire place. The plywood used for the chalkboard was left over from the playhouse loft bed I built a few months ago. Instead of the curved 1X12, we made it straight across using 4 pieces of 1X10 that we pieced together using our pocket hole jig. We then added the 1x2's and 1X4 for a little architectural interest and to cover up the seams on the 1X10.

Love the build, the chalkboard paint, the big fat tree, the wooden tree on the mantle and the reindeer pillow!
