I have some pieces of white marble tile left over from my real-life fireplace project in my living room, and it looks like it will make the perfect hearth.
I was considering putting the new classic fireplace in the Crescent Moon Cottage in place of this one in the living room. This is the house where I keep my Tynietoys. What do you think? It may be a little too formal - not sure... Crescent Moon Cottage link
Here are some pictures of my real life fireplace project in the living room.
I painted the old fireplace white, and covered the brick areas with blue/aqua glass tile. I replaced the beige 1980's tile with some marble subway tiles on the floor.
Meanwhile, I have had a disaster at the cozy cabin fireplace that I have been avoiding. The air-dry clay that I used shrank to nearly half its size. The arch collapsed and the there are now gaping holes on the sides. My plan "B" is to salvage what I can and try a different brand of clay. I will keep you posted.
