Here's my DIY faux fireplace I made upcycling a $40 TV cabinet I purchased from marketplace. This project cost me $75 including the firewood. I used the flowing items from bunnings:

 

- plywood sheet 

-selleys gap filler

-5 metres of timber moulding

- black spray paint 

-20kg bag of hotshots firewood

Re: DIY faux fireplace

Welcome to the Bunnings Workshop community @marilynwinn. It's fantastic to have you join us, and many thanks for contributing your project.

That's some creative and inspiring work you've done there! Your styling is just impeccable as well. Will you keep this faux fireplace out all year round, or will it only be for the festive season?

 

Many thanks for sharing and including construction images. They'll really assist any of our member's wishing to give something like this a go. I can't wait to see what you'll contribute next.

Hi @marilynwinn 

Wow well done! I have never personally seen an upcycled cabinet made into a faux fireplace before, how clever! 

 

Was the ornate piece above the opening also from Bunnings? I just adore it.

Hi @KatieC 

 

Thank you so much. I was lucky enough to take that off an old piece of furniture item I had laying around that I no longer used. It worked perfectly with my fireplace .
