It’s beginning to look a lot like christmas

Christmas is in full swing around here. We have been like busy little elves when ever we get the chance creating and making little things, revamping others that where looking a little worse for ware.

Jack has created a Pinterest Board on how we made the fireplace.

List of Supplies:

Fireplace Brickwork:

  • Boxes: Radio Rentals: Free (we rent our fitness equipment and it had to be fixed, when he returned it Jack asked for a couple of the large screen TV boxes that he had on the truck). We used one large box for the actual fireplace, and then cut the smaller one down for the Mantle and the Hearth.
  • Paint: I think the colour is fire engine red. {BUNNINGS} Our local cheap shop has red paint for under $4.00
  • Bricks: is just a thin masking tape. {BUNNINGS}

Mantle & Hearth – Contact: {BUNNINGS}

Fire: Local Market $25.00

This frame came from Ikea a few years back, it started it’s life black and then i spayed painted it white, and thought how nice would it look gold. The quote is actually an under $2.00 gift bag from a local cheap shop just cut to fit.
