I'm such a dummy. . .

I ALWAYS forget to take before pictures! When I get an idea for a project, I just set to work on it and then later I think "I should have taken a picture of it before I started".  .  .oh well.  .  .


I found this at the auction a while ago, abandoned. It doesn't look like much in the pictures, but I believe it to be either part of a fireplace mantel or perhaps part of an old sideboard. It's quite large, over 3 feet long, and quite heavy too!

There is glass that goes in the middle of it.

Unfortunately, I am going to move later on this year, and I do not think I'll be able to take it with me, so I've been trying to sell it. No takers yet, though. Maybe if I fix it up a little more, I can make a little profit on it.

That way makes it portable and they use gel can inserts that are smokeless and can heat a room also. No wiring or gas lines needed. Melody Posted: 1:22 pm on February 19th

Don't give it away! You always pick up stuff that you will never be able to duplicate for the price. Figure out a way to take it. Check out the fake fireplace I made with a twin headboard on my pofolksdecorator1, you can sit it on top of a shelf, make a cozy fake fireplace in a bedroom, so many possibilities. It is awesome!@@@@!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Annie Posted: 6:16 pm on February 18th
