One of the guest rooms is extremely cold all winter ( the other one - right beside it is extremely hot - but I've given up trying to figure anything out in this fixer upper of ours )
So a small electric fireplace was the perfect solution for the room
I think I got this for 50.00 - but wood was not going to work in this room ............at all. - it's a dark wood ( had it been black I would have left it probably )
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ™ to the rescue - Pure White
The room is too small to put a proper end table beside the bed - especially with the bed tucked into that
" nook "
I had a narrow console there - but a fireplace makes it even " cosier " than it already is ( and trust me this room is as
I distressed the edges slightly - and than fell back on my usual " more is more " and added a little painted detail
There's enough room for the necessities - a book - a cup of tea - a clock AND a
door handle - since my other half doesn't seem to think it's important to put the handles back on any of the doors..................pffft - " I can do that anytime " he assures me - " Are you in that much of a rush? " he asks me - " There's Hockey on " he warns me..................
A year later I've just placed it in the room so people can actually get out of it if necessary - or use it as a weapon in case there's a break in .
I'd do it myself but for some reason these ones are too stiff and I mess up every time ( I try at least once a month LOL )
DO NOT ASK ME WHAT IT TOOK TO GET THIS UNIT PLUGGED IN !
But if we were still in our rowhouse there would have been some raised eyebrows.
The outlet is behind the bed in that section where everything fits wall to wall and can barely be budged -
It involved John standing over me - dripping sweat - and me scrambling around on my hands and knees and slithering underneath - there were a few " higher's! " and " quick! - I can't hold on much longer's! " belted out and then silence...................followed by an " ahhhhh "
I got it plugged in !
John let the bed down with a bang.
and ta da !
For those of you that follow you must be thinking " not another fireplace ! "
Yep, another one LMHO !!!
John says - Are you going to put one of those damn things in every room ?
Suzan says - Don't be silly ...................they'd be far too dangerous in the bathrooms
Have a wonderful day everyone - the weekend's almost here
( weekend? what's a weekend? I miss that show already )
( you can see which guest room I'm referring to HERE - all 70 square feet of it )
