This is the third installment of this week’s series on Faux Fireplaces. I found this one in a junk shop for a decent price.
It was originally white, but it was filthy. It was also covered with various metal embellishments. I removed the gaudy ornamentation and then went to town with soap, water and a little muscle. Once it was clean, an application of my trusty flat black paint completed the transformation.
This photo was shot in the entry hallway, and the mantle is decorated for the holidays.
