Pin It Weekly #78

Fireplaces!  I know, it's too hot for a fire, but it's perfect for redoing the fireplace: paint, cover, clean, decorate, change, refresh, well, whatever you might like.  These are all from my board, "fireplace, mantel" which is relatively new so there are only 30 or so pins on it.

Over 150 Different Indoor Fireplace Ideas.

the star and fence would be perfect year round - just switch out the rest depending on season or use fence to hang family pics... hmm

Really like the surround for the gas fireplace.  Great Idea for ours without being to over the top

I know I've already pinned this, but I also just love this yellow mustard color for our living room...mix in a little teal!

A sunburst mirror is a great way to dress up a living room mantel. More high-impact redecorating ideas:

The following are from my "public, library" board.  I haven't shown any of the pins in a while and thought it would be fun to see some libraries from around the world.
