The Fake Fireplace

My husband amazes me. We both wanted a fireplace, however we don't have a chimney for one, so for our second winter season we decided that we should make a fake one for ambiance.
I had the perfect thing for the frame. A bookcase headboard for a twin bed!
Now it has a double function.

We bought some faux brick paneling and some wire nails for the project and we had some scrap molding pieces for the other parts.
A little black paint on the inside.
Some logs and a "fire light with fan".
All that is need now is a hearth which we will be working on soon.
We placed a real fireplace screen in front of it and the cleaning tools next to it and some people have thought we have a real fireplace in our living room.

We are planning on putting a free standing fireplace in before winter so this will have to go.
It was cozy while it lasted.
The next one will be even nicer!
Thank you for stopping by.
