I Will Make This... Faux Real.

Yup... I went there. The infamous switchup up of Faux Vs. Fo'
Classic, Timeless, Punny.

I have been watching Craigslist for ages, waiting for a cheap mantel to appear. I am hoping by the time fall rolls around again, I will have some luck.

Or... I may just take some tips from these amazing DIY'rs, whip out the tools, and create my own!

The Little Apartment
 I love that this one looks like something I can do with very little tools, very little time, and take a lot of creative liberties. I would want my reclaimed wood to be a little bit more substantial. Thicker and wider would fit my taste. Super inspirational... and obviously, the trunks are ok too :)

Dreamy Whites
This one is pretty much like a dream come true... But I would need one amazing antique mantel to pull this look off. Really sturdy, really fresh... I love it all around.

Jaime Scott
I am 99% sure that I am going to go with the chalk board fireplace center. Then it can be changed for every season, every mood, every celebration. I love the look. The mantel is crisp and clean. Options, Options, Options......

Those are my thoughts on faux fireplaces... do you have any ideas or pics you have seen?
