Transforming a fireplace

We’ve had a traditional style fireplace in our home that I made almost 10 years ago and have always loved it, especailly at Christmas, but recently we were becoming increasingly frustrated by the cramped corner where our TV unit sits and the inability to add a chair or two to our small living room.

In an effort to streamline the look and reduce the clutter, we decided to modify the fireplace and build a TV unit that would encompass the fireplace and free up the corner of the room for a chair.

We had to cut the ends of the top of the fireplace and then by adding some store bought melamine shelving and some trim, we were able to create an entertainment unit that would house all of our “crap” and free up space both literally and visually.

Now to find the perfect chair for the corner…………………..
