I heart a good fireplace y’all. I don’t care if it’s faux or not, it’s all amazing! Since we are currently living in a rental home, faux errrrythang has been my friend! We have a beautiful chippy white mantle in our living room and it is hands down my fav-o-rite piece we own!
A little backstory on our mantle: I bought it at an antiques market the day before the movers were coming to our house to pack up our things. I should mention that I swore up and down to the my sweet husband before I went to that antiques market that I would not buy any piece of furniture. Maybe a nicknack or two but that’s it. Scouts Honor😂! Ya see, we were down sizing to a smaller home and it would be a stretch to fit everything we already had. Did I mention we were selling our house and moving in a week? Oh but y’all… I saw her and it was love at first sight! I quickly bought it and strapped that baby to the top of my itty bitty car and drove it home. You should’ve seen the look on his face when I got home. He is so good to me though guys. He just silently helped me take it inside!
With our faux mantle up in our rental home, I struggled with what to insert in the actual hearth area though and I thought that a lot of other people probably do as well! If you are in a current situation where faux has to be your friend too, I’ve come up with some gorgeous faux fireplace insert inspiration for ya!
