I'm sure most of you have seen this done before, but I am dying to do this in the fireplace
in our living room. We cannot burn wood in this fireplace.
It has a gas line in it, but we have no plans to have gas logs installed.
Here it is currently.
My heart was set on stacking logs in the entire box. Much like these inspiration pictures.
However, I have recently seen a lot of this.
I have shredded old book pages to make a nest
and I have torn pages out of old books to make a book page wreath.
So why not stack old books in the fireplace?
This would be an inexpensive project using books from a thrift store.
Kind of unexpected, don't you think?
What do you think, logs or books?
I love the natural element of the wood, but the quirkiness of the books appeals to me also.
I would love to know your thoughts.
Also, Friday is the last day to enter the Olive Leaf Stencil giveaway.
The giveaway will close at 11:59 p.m. Be sure to check back on Saturday to find out who won.
Lastly, thanks for all your kind comments on my thrifty artwork and fab fabric find.
It really makes my day to read all your comments.
