I wanted to add architectural interest to my daughter's room. I have always been in love with the skinny, smaller fireplaces that were in bedrooms in the Victorian era. I decided to base my measurements on one of those and picked up the materials for around $70. I love shiplap and wanted it to have that look on the front. I used inexpensive textured, paintable wallpaper to back the inside. My daughter loves to sit on her rug in front of it and have tea parties with her sister. It will be a fun area to decorate for each holiday.
