We have a fireplace in our family room. I don’t much care for it. Firstly this is Tucson so there is really no need for a fireplace and according to our home inspector it’s mostly just for looks. And it’s fugly.
I mean for goodness sake the tile is the same tile from our bathrooms, and the light fixtures which I did not picture, because I dislike them that much, are meant to be front porch lights. I appreciate the spirit of using what you have lying around, but a little more taste would have been nice.
I used to have plants shoved in there and all around, but the dust and clutter was driving me mad so I walked around the house collecting possibilities and just played with it for 10 minutes or so and this is how it will sit until I get itchy, twitchy and restless again.
I got this frame and the oval one out of a junk pile. I found the cats at Goodwill. They were avocado and mustard. The power of spray paint is great!Abraham Lincoln (formerly bronze in color) was 5 bucks at a yard sale. The garland is Christmas clearance from Target. And of course Benny with Lamby and his favorite monkey spoon are the cherry on top.
