Now, the fireplace is positioned across from the center of the dining room table and looks much better.
I changed the look of the fireplace a little by hanging some fabric in the opening. hanging a sign in the opening, and putting a string of battery operated lights in the non working vintage heater.
There is a cabinet on each side of the fireplace that I put fall vignettes on.......
I edited the decor inside of the cabinet on this side for a cleaner look
I did the same thing to the cabinet on the other side of the fireplace......
I created a new fall vignette on the top of the cabinet....
Well, it's not really new stuff! I stole it from the sofa table in the family room and put something different there. Here's a link to the post with all the details of how I made my pumpkins.....http://penny-pennystreasures.blogspot.com/2021/08/adorable-pumpkins-made-with-everyday.html
I cleaned the inside of this cabinet too but it still looks kind of cluttered!
Imagine how this room looked with the fireplace down where the white cabinet is......it was worth all the hard work we put into moving the faux fireplace.
This is the cabinet where I house all the family dishes.....my mothers wedding dishes......my grandmothers Desert Rose dishes......and a set of my favorite dishes.
And in front of the cabinet is a little round table just big enought for 2 little grandkids to sit and have some cookies and milk. The cow is a cookie jar that is always full of yummy cookies!
The fabric is some I've had on them for over 15 years and it was sure time for a change.
This is how the fireplace looked last year at Christmas. You can see how the chandy is not centered with the fireplace but to the far left of it.
I can't wait to decorate it for Christmas this year!
