...and my desire for a warm, cozy fireplace. There's not much room in our little studio, and floor space is rather valuable. I came up with this faux-fireplace to satiate both my longing for a hearth and to fulfill a need for an inviting/functional entryway. This does both.
I made a quick sketch of the idea at work on, yes, a post-it note.
In a smaller then 4x4 entryway, this project provides not only a lovely focal point, but a nice place to hang your hat (or purse, or umbrella).
