My husband built out the wall for a standard size fireplace area, floor to ceiling. We actually put in the electrical inside the faux fireplace so if we ever want to add in an electric fireplace.
I’ll admit, my request made the job much more difficult, but we both agree it looks fantastic. We found our tile from Floor & Decor.
Having worked so hard to make this area beautiful, I lamented the idea of hanging a big black TV on the wall.
WHY WE CHOSE A TV TO PLACE ABOVE OUR DIY FAUX FIREPLACE MANTEL
I feel like the black frame still makes it look like a TV, so we plan on making our own wood frame to sit around it so that it looks more like framed art.
