This Homemade Fireplace Turned A Boring Wall Into The Best Part Of The House

JANUARY 23, 2015

Fireplaces are often thought of as a luxury item. They're not in every household and are rarely found in apartments. Just because they're hard to find, though, doesn't mean you can't enjoy your very own fireplace. This family proved that with a little elbow grease, you can create your own luxury living arrangement, too.

Their living room needed something different, something to make it feel more like a home. There was a large, undecorated area that was seemingly made for a fireplace. Sure, it was going to involve a lot of work, but once they finished, everyone knew it would be well worth the effort.

Here's the start of the project - a blank wall, a couple holes, and a wooden frame.

The next step was to begin the construction of the supports for the area where the electric fireplace would live, as well as where the sheet rock would go.

The electric fireplace was installed.
