She sheds are all about the cozy and what is cozier than a fire in the fireplace? We all know the many reasons why that is NOT often possible to have but this article is all about the possibilities. You can build a cute fireplace as simple or as ornate as you like in the shed or any other room. Then, like magic, your space will instantly feel warmer.
You can find old coal and wood stoves anywhere. Many of them have gorgeous stamped detail, like this one (they don’t make ’em like they used to). Don’t worry about missing pieces or trying to actually install it. Instead scoot it into the place you want a fireplace and use a flame bulb underneath birch logs to light the fire.
This one from The Honeycomb Home starts with an old surround that Roxanne found at a flea market. She was smart to seal the piece so that it stayed “chippy” but didn’t deteriorate any further. Learn all about Roxanne’s score and project in her post.
Artist Lori Cravotta turned an ordinary side table into a French-style faux fireplace in her she shed. She and her daughter Jami cut off a portion of the table and its back two legs, secured it to the wall, tiled the top, built a small platform of bricks to set it on, then filled it with LED candles in tall holders. Voilá — instant cozy factor!
Here’s a great idea from Hallmark’s Home&Family site. You can create a feeling of fire using an artful stack of pretty logs that are joined together with dowels. Then create a hollow in a few places to set in votives.
