Shop Woodstoves Below
I have a woodstove in the middle of my family room. I guess you could say it’s off to the side of the room, but it does take up some space. I would much rather have a fireplace with a mantel to decorate. You can’t always get what you want, right? It gets difficult to decorate when you’re using it so what I have on top of it now will come off when it gets cold. I love to add color to a room, so this is what I did to cover,(haha) I mean spice up the room. I prefer natural items, but the leaves have not changed yet where I live. Once we start building a fire in it, I will be glad for it because it does give a welcomed toasty warmth. Then I usually put a few pottery type vases on top to add color since they can handle the intense heat. I always have a good supply of candles and vases with fresh flowers to change things quickly when spring and summer arrive because it is what we look at while seated unless we are watching TV. I have to admit that I would rather decorate than clean, so the décor usually happens first. Since I work full time, I tend to go the quick route with DIY projects but once in a while on weekends I’ll do a project and share it with you as energy supplies!
