  1. WOW you did an outstanding job! I love it. It looks beautiful in your space and it looks like it’s always been there….you know…it fits perfectly! Job well done!!! Very inspiring and I love your floating flowers…

  2. this looks great! I ended up buying a mantel off of craigslist that needs some work, will hopefully have it ready before Thanksgiving. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. It looks amazing.
    I had my husband build me a fake fireplace last year before Christmas ’cause I desperately wanted a mantel. Ours is free standing, but I like how you built yours on the wall. And I love the brick inside. I just painted mine black, but I’ve been trying to come up with something else. I may have to steal your idea. :o)

  4. Wow Destiny, this is such a clever idea! Especially for someone like me who doesn’t have a fireplace! You are amazing! I love all of the beautiful additions you have made to your home!

  5. LOOOVVVEEE IT!!! What a great idea. So wish I could have this instead of the wood stove that sets awkwardly in our living room. I also love your brown paper flowers. Did you make those….I’m sure you did.

  6. A new follower here. How creative, I think every home should have a fireplace, whether it is real or not it sure does give a room character and warmth (the visual kind). I love the horizontal wood for the backing too. I’m off to read a little bit more now. Thanks for sharing!

  7. Destiny, this is amazing!! I saw you’re beautiful project a long time ago {way before I started blogging} and it inspired me to create a fireless fireplace in my home! It took me forever to actually start on it, but it’s almost done!! I had forgotten where I found this idea until I saw you on Lil’ Luna. I had pinned something else from your blog and wanted to check it out, but never got around to it {my memory fails me a lot}. So when you were Kristyn’s guest, it reminded me to visit you and I found my fireplace inspiration while I was at it! Thank you so much for sharing your talents and helping me create some sort of fireplace for my home! 🙂

  8. I love what you have done here with creating a fireplace. I think it is my favorite of all posts I have seen ever. I just love it! You have done such a great job! Every now and then I have to come back here and look again. It makes me happy to see what you have accomplished. Keep it up!

  9. Thank you for sharing. I have been on google for over an hour looking for inspiration. I found you through Ana White’s blog. This is exactly what i was looking for in a mantle!

    1. Oh great!!!! So happy to help! What did you type when you were looking? I can always change the wording so its easier to find on google for someone next time! :0)

  10. My husband is making me this fireplace in our master for my Christmas present 🙂 We’re sketching things out and I was wondering how wide yours is (for a reference of scale) and how wide/tall the fireplace insert part is as well?? Thanks!

    1. I’m not sure! I will get back to you on that! My guess is about 54 inches wide overall:0) and about 3×2 insert:0)
