Good Morning friends!
I’m so happy you’ve stopped by! Today, I really need your help! Seriously.
First, let me give you a little bit of background. Ever since we moved into our home, I have never liked the fireplace mantel in our living room. I have searched Pinterest high and low for ideas, but I’m sure we are the only people on the planet with a mantle like this! Here, have a peek…
It is the hardest space ever to decorate. It is 2 feet in depth. You would think it was made for the older style tube TV but it doesn’t have an electric outlet so I guess it’s just meant as a ledge/mantle to decorate.

1. We love the look of the marble tile around the fireplace. While our mantel looks nothing like this picture, our tile will go around the gas fireplace and on the floor exactly like shown. We love the fresh, white look of the tiles and are hoping for something white but with less of a design going through it.
2. Get rid of the oak and paint it white!
3. Spray paint the gold strips on the frame of the fireplace.
4. Okay, this is the big one…. I
will beg my husband would really love to close in the opening of the mantle. Like, drywall it and cut its depth in half. What do you think? Am I crazy and should I just live with it?… I’d love for you to comment below please and help me convince my husband to do it. Or even just to tell me to leave it as is! I would really appreciate it!
While you are reading this, I hope to be smashing that tile! I’m excited to share our progress and the final result with you in the next couple weeks!
Until next time,
