DIY "Fireplace"

Rate this Entry
Turning a yard sale/thrift store table into a fireplace. Of course, you could make the frame out of lumber if you like.

The base:

Add some 1"x4" and 1"x2" strips and insulating foam cut to size...

More details in Foam, caulk to fill in the cracks.

Base coat of gray.

Some black paint in the details to make them pop, maybe a little black wash for aging if you like.

Stop here or maybe make a facade with some blow mold bones?

Be careful to keep the expanding foam only where you WANT it to be!

Some more paint and a nice black wash...

Thanks to Pete Della Rocca!

Happy Haunting!
