I love having a fireplace - in the winter.
But, what do you do with an empty, black box in the wall during the summer?
Sure is a boring space when there's no fire burning!
I've seen ideas such as pillar candles (been there, done that)
and stacked white, birch logs (pretty - but can't find any).
Sooo...I decided to make a vignette in that black box.
Here's a picture with the screen open - with two pillar candles in front.
Here's the same set-up without the candles.
I think I like this look better.
The candles with everything else was just "too much".
I tried putting the candles on top of the green, glass candlesticks (from Goodwill, of course!)
but it made the look too tall.
Oh, and I found the monogrammed platter at Tuesday Morning.
The overall look when you walk in the front door...
What do you think??
