Well i did a mini makeover on my fireplace in the dining room..my mum gave me a marble hearth as she had bought a new one.
Our fireplace is a totally homemade job..my hubby made it out of pallets a few years ago now..we needed one but couldn't afford one so he made it..brilliant isn't he.
It was looking a bit tired and had some marks on it..so to make the hearth fit we had to strip the fireplace to bits ,shorten it in length and then put it back together..which he did in an afternoon.
I bought these little letters for 49p off Ebay and decided where to put them and hubby glued them on then it was a quick couple of coats of paint and bingo i have a lovely and very unique fireplace..for the grand total of 49p..what do you think.
|The hearth my mum gave me|
|Letters glued on|
|It looks a bit grubby|
|A crack that had been filled and fixed..|
|All painted and looking good.|
I put my Enid Blyton books on it and some little bits as well..
I like it..not bad for the price either.
