Looking for ideas for a coat and frame fireplace DIY? Whether your style is shaker, craftsman, or farmhouse, this straightforward step-by-step approach may help you design your living room or family room with a stunning fireplace.
We absolutely love fireplaces. We not only like the anchoring of a fireplace in a room, but it also provides charm, character, and architecture. It’s no better than to snuggle on a cold winter day with a blanket beside the fire. Ask about it for my youngest petite, Mr. A! The air conditioner is on and Mr. A will light up the fireplace, snuggling in a blanket. It can be 90 degrees outdoors. You will see that the patriotic décor is on the shelf, the fireplace is on and we are snuggled up to read a Libro if you look closely at this picture.
Yes, July is here and he wants fire! He wants fire! Something mystical is certainly about a fire. Call for a simpler moment as a family and exchange stories around the fire. You’re new here, really fast? When that happens, WELCOME! We like new friends, don’t miss out on our recent thoughts. Say hi in the comments and register for our weekly email.
Before: Mantle of the fireplace with wrap
Let us look at what the day we moved into this room was. The formal dining room was previously this location. This area was changed into a comfortable living room with creative remodeling. Do you want to see more of the change? Can you believe the change? Is it not wonderful what a fireplace and integrated furnishings can do? We believe so obviously! The way it turned out is pleasing to us. Finish the room definitely.
Design and layout: Fireplace
We begin by drafting the design plan for it on the wall.
Pro Tip: Our wall marks were 1′′ smaller to cover the thickness of the drywall than our planned design.
My smart husband Steve said to me, “Why do we not reinstate the fireplace that existed in that den when I began to search for the ideal gas fireplace. “
I didn’t like the thought at first, it seemed with a lot of brilliant brass trimming. I assumed I would paint with high temp fireplace paint for updating if we were to use the current fireplace.
Again, I found my ax husband Steve a way to remove the coupling without having to make any paint. Let me tell you a secret, CHEAP! I don’t know anyone like him who hates money spending. What’s good for me, because he continually searches for ways to utilize something we already possess.
Fireplace frame: We built the fireplace framework out of 2 x 4 wood with our drawing blueprints on the wall. A PVC pipe behind the frame is also visible. This was the idea for wires, game, surround sound, and cable wiring. Again, behind any initiative, he’s the BRAIN.
The design and planning of the coat of arms and frames We have traced the design and proportions of the coat and frame on the wall with the finished curb and plaster. The sketch of the vicinity and mantle can be seen here. This helps to know how to cut every piece of wood precisely.
Adding trimming: Chimney coat and surrounding
Now is the time to detail! Yes! This is certainly what gives life to the mantle and fireplace. We use plinth for all the craftsman/ornamental shaker’s features. In my home, I wanted to have a coherent look. So we discovered a baseboard trim very much like the cabinets to imitate the design of the shaker cabinets in our kitchen. See the cabinets and trim we are using. You don’t believe this is a good mix?
