Happy April Monday everyone! Today I’ll show you my simple fireplace cover up !
On Friday I showed you my wall above the fireplace, the cute washi tape frames I put around my girls pics from when they were smaller. Well now comes the part underneath that….
Remember my fireplace? That ugly thing I’m trying to style and make look better without investing a whole lot because I live in a rental? Yes, that one! I showed you my spring fireplace the other day and not long after that I came across a beautiful blog called Little Farmstead and got so inspired I thought I needed to move to the country right away! Oh my!
I love how Julie covered up her beautiful fireplace mantel and thought that it would look really nice in my living room as well! Even though my fireplace doesn’t come close to her beautiful~rustic~country~style~chic one! But I really like that it covers all those dirty bricks once and for all! Ok, there are still some visible but that’s ok. And the BEST: it’s super duper easy peasy, just what I like doing!
I didn’t even have to get fabric for it, I used a white vintage tablecloth that I never ever have out any ways. It’s from my Oma, yes, another one of those treasures I keep hidden away cause I don’t really use it. Well now it came in handy! I also didn’t cut it or sew it, because I might want to use it as a tablecloth one day… Happens that the size was just perfect to hang it over a pressure curtain rod inside the frame of the fireplace. No hammering no nothing. Just that.
I cut out some triangles from a very nice linen fabric I bought the other day and made a very quick banner for the fireplace. I didn’t even sew around them, I kinda like the rustic, look and I just poked my thin golden wire through them and hung it up with the curtain. I left it plain on purpose, as I think, with all that’s going on around it, it would be too much….at least for me, you know how I’m lovin the less is more look!
So what do you think of this simple fireplace cover up?? Would you keep it open and uncovered or do you like this idea?
Thanks for stopping by, I always love reading your comments!!!
