A Fireplace for the Bedroom

I am adding a television back into my bedroom. I haven’t had one in here for about two years or more now. I haven’t missed it up until now. Of course I need something to put it on so I started to think about what I already had. I decided to move an antique Faux Fireplace that is in my second floor bathroom, into my bedroom. I will freshen it up with two coats of Paris Grey, a small amount of Graphite over the detail work, by Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, clear wax over the entire piece then a little dark was just over the detail work, to give it a rich look. For now I will set the television on top.

I had a little surgery done early in early October and I was resting for a little while, so this TV was my friend for a bit. After I am back at it again, {and we all know that wont take long} I plan to hang it on the wall. I certainly wouldn’t want to waste a perfectly good surface to decorate, so up on the wall she will go. I am not sure if I will conceal the TV or not, we will see.

Ok, so it was a very sunny day, so not the best pictures 😐

Don’t mind the wire, of course we only moved the television in the night before my surgery so it was a “quick lets do this” sort of project. Please tell me I’m not alone.

It was painted in the same, so called cream that was everywhere in my house, and can you believe I didn’t paint it white. I felt since it had this gray interior that Paris

Grey would be a better choice.

You can see a little of my vanity in the back ground here. The vanity will be moving to the dressing room/walk in closet soon, to make room for the armoire from the dining room, which is being moved into the space where the vanity is. The dressing room is a project we are starting after the Holidays, it is right next to this bedroom.
