Faux fireplace with hidden storage

I slightly modified my build. I kept the same dimensions as the plans, but made the top shelf 7” from the top to allow for a bigger firebox. I added faux brick made from masking tape, joint compound and chalk paint. I changed the molding a bit and used 3” pine slats for the top. Inside I added 3 shelves, attached with pocket hole screws, to fit in as many DVD’s as possible. Overall this was an easy build. It took me almost as long to paint it, as to build it. Thank you Ana for the plans!
