So we have this non-working fireplace in our living room, which I think is a bonus! To be honest I don't think it was ever a working fireplace since there is no chimney that comes from it?!I find the fireplace a real focal point and a great way to ground the space with decorating. But what do I do when I can't have a roaring fire? I did some extensive internet research and found a great deal of candle inspiration which seemed to be a pretty standard option. But would be great if you still wanted that glow of light. Then I came across and fell in love with the look of stacking wood into the fireplace opening. It's visually interesting and natural looking! A great solution to the problem!
So I headed on over to the local nursery and purchased two 8 foot long birch logs and a few smaller logs, thinking I would have enough. I asked my dad to cut them into 2 inch sections to be easily piled on top of each other.
I think it turned out great but I still need more!!!!
