Two years ago I made a simple fireplace out of stuff we had lying around (see here).
I took it down when I moved the bed and had set it up in my husbands office for a time.
I had to take it down there, because Mr Viking has too many books... and he rather wanted to have another bookcase than a faux fireplace! (Can you imagine!?!)
So it spent some time ... ahhhm below our bed.
In summer I had an idea.
I bought an small electric fireplace.
( it reminded my of visiting England as a teenanger...)
As there is a closet on the other side of the wall I wanted the fireplace to go, it was just to make an opening as big as the fireplace and insert it into the wall/closet behind.
I added some board and batten around and I am now the happy owner of a REAL faux fireplace.
Mr Viking likes it, too.
This is the true account of the story how a little fireplace reached it's final destination.
