DIY Faux Fireplace Reveal

I have something so fun to share with you today! Back when I posted about our renovated sitting room, I knew that the room was still missing a few things (and, it still is!). But, since that was right before the holidays I just left it as is. After doing some digging around Pinterest, I discovered exactly what I wanted to add in the sitting room. And, that’s why we’re here today – I give you our DIY faux fireplace reveal!

Isn’t she a dream?! It’s amazing how a relatively simple piece can transform the entire mood of the room. The faux fireplace adds the right amount of farmhouse charm that I’m always after, and it provides a much-needed focal point for the room. Now, it’s practically the first thing that you see when you walk into our house!

I wish that we could take credit for this project, but I’m more than happy to give credit where it is deserved! Kristi from Making it in the Mountains is the mastermind behind this DIY. I found her tutorial from a guest post on AKA Design. If you check out her original photo, I even tried to mimic her decor styling since I loved it so much.

And, obviously, I have to thank my handy husband Ryan for making this project come to fruition. I think he followed the tutorial almost exactly, but knowing him he probably made a few adjustments. 😉 It actually was a simple DIY that was finished in only a couple days!

I spy a lens cap on the coffee table … oops!

As if I didn’t love this room so much already, our DIY faux fireplace makes me love this space that much more! This is now where I spend a majority of my mornings with a cup of coffee and Finley snuggles (of course). I also find myself in here more times than not when I want some quiet time to read or brainstorm new ideas. Never did I think that I’d have such a cozy little retreat in my own home!

I linked to what I could below, but let me know if you have any other questions!
