A neat way to do a free standing fire place if your stuck in a house with room for an insert/ you don't have space for a free standing one in your living room/ if you still want a mantle.


DesignHome - Interior / Fireplaces look inviting in a home but are highly inefficient when it comes to heating. The solution is a wood (or pellet) burning stove installed directly into the fireplace as illustrated in this picture. It looks much better than an insert, and if well-matched to the fireplace, imparts ambience as well as warmth to the room.

Fireplace Baby Proofing- Here is my quick solution to keep my newly crawling baby out of the fireplace! I cut and taped foam board to fit the size of the opening. I hot glued magnets to the edges of the foam board to hold it in place since our gas log insert is magnetic. I wrapped the foam board in fabric and hot glued the edge of the fabric to the back of the foam board. It really was a simple fix!
