Fireplace Surround and Insert

Hi Sweet friends.
Happy Saturday.

I said I would show you the treasure I found in Michigan last weekend.

It did start a switch a roo on the living room wall once again!!!!




I found this old fireplace surround.  All chippy and beautiful. 
I also found this vintage fireplace insert on FB Market place. 
They fit perfectly together.





Of course this was all rusty and chippy and I added some white paint to bring out the detail of this piece and it also fits in the surround much better.
Down inside this I plan on putting some candles and greens for Christmas.

On the fireplace mantel I found an old light fixture I made into a candle holder. 
Looks so pretty with the candles burning at night which happens for us at 5pm now ugh!


I found this beautiful piece of art work on Etsy by a very talented artist. 
I bought this piece to place on the top of the mirror over the fireplace. 
It has been shipped and I cannot wait to receive it.

I found this pretty planter on Etsy too.  I plan on using this for Christmas.  I love to support small business.

  We finally have the garage up.  Yay!  
We still are waiting on the electrician to do the final part of this garage build.  
Then we should have a full functioning garage.  

I found some vintage looking white lantern lights for the garage this past weekend too.  As soon as the electrician can come they will be installed too.

The new windows are all installed on the house and what a difference that makes with how cold it has been.

Finally all the big projects are done on this house. 
Now we can move into the cold winter and holidays with all the building finished.

Have a great weekend.
Hugs,
Kris

  1. OH MY STARS. You nailed it. This is the ultimate. These two pieces Kris, I would have thought they came together, but you DID IT!!!!!!!!!!!! I think this fits perfectly and gives the cottage feel. Now both chairs are the perfect small cottage choice as they are hugged by this center piece. YOU are going to have a blast decorating for all seasons in this space!!! WONDERFUL WONDERFUL!!!!

  5. Oh Kris, what lucky finds! They are so pretty there and for Christmas will be perfect. Congrats on getting the garage done before winter! That was fast. My contractor is kind of slow turning work out--but then he is my husband!

    I love that planter! A real treasure and I believe in supporting people on Etsy too!

  23. Well it looks like you scored again! How nice that you got new windows and the garage is finished (well almost)! This winter weather sure started early!

  24. Love that fireplace mantel and insert...what great finds! Lovely garage too!

  25. You've done it again! The fireplace mantle and insert are just perfect. New windows can certainly make a difference, cant they? I noticed such a difference in the noise level with new windows. Have a great week!

  26. The garage looks great! I LOVE the insert, and fireplace surround, Kris! It all looks amazing with the mirror, and lamps. You must feel so cozy in the evenings with the candles lit, sitting in your chairs next to your fireplace. So, so pretty.
    Have a great week! xo

  27. Wow love it all Kris! That mantel and insert are just stunning.. and I love the antique-i-ness of the insert... so pretty in white of course. I have mantel envy.. as we had our bricks torn out and our wood stove insert put in, but nothing is there to surround it and no mantel. I'm so bummed. We can't do it ourselves and can't afford to have anyone do it! It's so ugly! Love the candles on top and I can just see it all decorated up for the holidays. And that garage.. oh so nice to have with the cold snap that is heading your way! Have a great week! Marilyn

  29. Kris - you sure have vision. And I cannot even believe the mantle/surround and the insert didn't come together! That is true serendipity! Made for one another! Love it!

    Grats on the garage.

    Hope you have a lovely week.

  32. That looks fantastic, Kris!! I would be burning candles in that fireplace every evening! I put new windows in my house the first autumn also, and what a difference they make for keeping things toasty warm! The new garage looks wonderful, I'm sure you are both delighted to have those big projects done!
