06 Dec Home Depot Christmas Style Challenge: DIY Fireplace

 

A number of months ago, I was approached by Home Depot to participate in their Christmas Style Challenge, and I’m excited to FINALLY share the whole experience with you! I ended up creating a brand new mantel for my more modern home from scratch, and I couldn’t be happier with the final look. Best part is? It was TOTALLY easy! So if you are looking to make one on your own, read on.

And if you just want to see pretty pictures of how it turned out, read on too 🙂

I hope you enjoy the finished project below, and if you want to read a long DIY post about how I created it from start to finish, then check out THIS POST.

 

And a HUGE thank you to my friends who made the final moment even more special:

When Home Depot approached me about doing their Style Challenge, and explained I could pick from a few projects, the mantle being one of the options, it dawned on me that I didn’t even like our mantel! There wasn’t anything particularly wrong with it, except it didn’t feel like “me.”

And in my naive mind, I thought it would be a piece of cake to replace my mantel. And technically it was, but it just took longer than I thought. It always takes longer than we think, doesn’t it?

The decorations I got from Home Depot made the mantel even better, I am in love with the gold and red details in their holiday products.

Oh, and I made those white stockings from SWEATERS! From D.I., so they were like 5 dollars total. Amazing.

I want to express a HUGE thank you Home Depot for letting me be involved in the Christmas Style Challenge, I had a complete blast! And a huge thank you to my friends who made the final moment even more special:
