DIY Turn your mundane fireplace into a beautiful focal point


The fireplace is a great place to experiment with DIY. I’ve done all of these projects in one weekend and the results were stunning!

mantel decor

Mantel decor is a simple way to add color and character to your fireplace. It can also be fun, and is a great project for anyone who enjoys DIY projects. There are many different ways to decorate your mantel that can be made in just a few hours or less. The most important thing when decorating your mantel is choosing the right type of decor that suits your tastes and home décor style.

Here are some easy steps on how you can make decorative items for your fireplace:

  • Choose what kind of item you want to use as décor–this could be anything from candles, flowers or plants; all of which will add warmth and beauty to any room!
  • Clean up any dust on the surface area where there will be items placed for decoration purposes (make sure everything looks clean before placing anything else on top).
  • Now comes time for assembly–if it’s not already done by someone else beforehand then go ahead now because this step requires patience but it’ll pay off once completed successfully 🙂

media console

A media console is a great way to add storage and style to your living room. It’s also a great place for you to hide all those unsightly things you have lying around in your living room (like the TV).

You can turn it into a mini library, with books and magazines neatly stacked on top of each other. Or if you don’t use the shelves for books, you can use them as storage for DVDs, CDs, or knickknacks—whatever floats your boat!


  • Paint the fireplace a different color
  • Use stencils to paint a pattern on the fireplace
  • Paint the fireplace a color that matches the rest of the room
  • Use wallpaper borders to cover up any imperfections in brickwork

tile surround

  • Use a tile surround to make the fireplace look bigger.
  • Use a tile surround to make the fireplace look more modern.
  • Use a tile surround to make the fireplace look more luxurious.
  • Use a tile surround to make the fireplace look more rustic.


If you have a fireplace that doesn’t have built-in shelving, this is a great way to add storage space and display items.

Built-in shelving can be built in to the wall or freestanding. If you want it freestanding, consider using an old door as your shelf surface. This is an easy way to cover up any imperfections on the wall behind it (e.g., bad paint job or holes).

In terms of placement, think about what you’ll be using your new shelves for. Do you need extra storage for books? Or would something decorative look better? A mix of both could work too—you can use one half for books and the other for decorations like plants!

The humble fireplace is a great area to experiment with DIY.

The humble fireplace is a great area to experiment with DIY. Whether you’re looking for inspiration or ideas on how to change the look of your fireplace, this blog post will help you get started. Here are some different options:

  • A wood-burning fireplace can be transformed by installing an elegant mantelpiece and placing decorative elements like vases, candles and books on top of it.
  • If you have a gas-powered fireplace, painting the inside of its glass doors is one way to add personality to your room without spending much money at all. Try pairing black with white for an elegant effect or go for bold colors for something more eye-catching! You could even add some crystals around the frame if you want something extra sparkly!
  • If you’re lucky enough to have an indoor hearth made out of brickwork instead of stone then why not paint over it? Fun colors like red or yellow would make this type of hearth stand out nicely against any other wall color in your house – but don’t stop there! Think about what else could be added too – maybe throw some flowers into those flower pots that were mentioned earlier…


With the right tools and materials, you can achieve the fireplace of your dreams. The key is to keep an open mind and try out different ideas. Don’t be afraid to experiment!
