Remember a few months ago when Husband surprised me with a Scandinavian-inspired fireplace? Well, it’s time to revisit the project and turn our non-working focal point into a full-blown fireplace! First step? Crafting a concrete mantel, which surprisingly, isn’t nearly as hard as it sounds. Watch how we tackled the project:

Since filming, the concrete has cured to a cool, light gray and we couldn’t love the look more. For our next trick, we’ll be installing our fireplace insert and watching our heating bill magically disappear! While you wait, check out these fireplace mantel designs.

Stay tuned; see you next Wednesday!
