stunning diy fireplace update. This is the exact lay out of my formel living room with windows & built in shelves on each side. I would never paint my brick or masonry but I love the tv over it, I don't have one at all in that room now. Its used primarily for rest, entertainment when I have large parties and family gatherings and I never wanted a tv for distraction.
Snowman Tree - use 9' slim pre-lit tree. Push bottom 2 layers of branches together then curl the next 2 layers into a ball shape, push the next 2 layers of branches together, curl the next 2 layers into a ball shape and repeat all the way up the tree. Cover the ball shaped sections with thick batting and tuck around to make a ball shape - the needles hold the batting nicely. Then shape the remaining sections to spread them out and hot glue eyes, nose and other decorations.
