Roadside Pick Up To Faux Fireplace

We love it when a transformation is so remarkable as this one. We saved this piece from a possible landfill life!

Not quite sure what is was used for but it already had the charm of a faux fireplace it just needed some tweaking.

First a new top! We burned the new top to bring out the grain.

Then we custom mixed our favorite General Finishes colors to make a Tobacco like stain. We did the same to the new bottom we made.

Then it needed a hole for the fire. So we started cutting!

Next up, we framed the hole. Painted the brick seagull grey and top coated all of it with General Finishes High Performace stain. Hung the window in front and added birch wood was cut to size and placed inside.

What have you saved from a landfill and repurposed? We would love to see!

Thanks for reading and happy junking!
