We have a gas fireplace with a weird looking modern, but not in a cool way, face on it. I have been wanting to give this part of our family room a facelift for a long time. I wish we had not taken out the big brick wood burning fireplace that used to be there. One of those short-sighted decisions I made when my children were young and I was terrified of tiny little walkers falling and cracking their head open on the large hearth. Chalk it up to another one of my irrational decisions in those early days. So, we are left with a funky modern-ish looking front on a fireplace that you light with a click of a button, (that part isn’t half bad truthfully). It’s time to get rid of it and put some character back in this room! I’ve been scouring the web for fresh little changes that can be made in my own space. We’ll never get the wood burning aspect back, but we can make a simple change that will warm up the space. Here’s what is inspiring me while designing the re-do.
