What kind of surround will we install, you ask? Have you ever heard of Airstone? If not, you can see some pictures of it here and here. Well I am planning to purchase the Airstone and apply it from right under the mantle down to the base board. And I just want to make a small mention that I attempted to contact Airstone to partner with them on this project three different times and got absolutely no response. Great job, Airstone! Just sayin… I am hoping to have this project finished in time to decorate for Christmas.
Here is a picture of my fireplace last fall, and you can click here if you would like to read the entire post.
I think this mantle adds so much character to our entire living room, and I cannot wait to decorate it year round!
In case you are wondering, I purchased this Turkish Kilim Pillow from this seller on EBay, and they have a great selection of Turkish Kilim items! And come to think of it, LC also purchased the vintage suitcase on EBay. The faux sheepskin on the chair is from Ikea. The Paris basket is from Marshall’s. I found that chair at our local Goodwill, and you can read more about it here.

Stay tuned for the final reveal on this fireplace, and I will also post a tutorial all about the installation of the Airstone. Once this fireplace is completely finished, this room will be well on its way. This is the most dramatic change that we will be making to change this room. The rest is just paint (and hopefully some new furniture but that is way down the road).
Have a great week!
