Happy Holidays!

I have been trying to get into the Christmas spirit with a little holiday DIY I saw on Instagram. I miss my East Coast family so much at this time of year. So, it has been a great distraction to pull out my art supplies and get crafty! Let’s create a budget-friendly DIY fireplace surround with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.

I wanted it to be a super simple holiday style in the living room using things I already had. Painting the logs was so fun, and I got some inspiration from one of my fave local home stores, Five Fields Decor.

All finished!


DIY Fireplace Surround

For my fireplace, I used – Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Graphite followed by AS Clear Glass Laquer. It’s budget-friendly, looks amazing and I can enjoy the holidays cozying up by my newly refreshed fireplace!


Now, I know I did this over the holidays, so naturally I had to decorate it accordingly. But, this DIY is so manageable and can be done whenever the mood strikes! It is so elegant, modern, and fresh, it really is worth the time and effort.

So, whether you are visiting with friends and family virtually or in person this holiday season, I hope you all really get a chance to get into the holiday spirit with some crafty DIY decorations like I have!
