I made this faux fireplace from some scrap wood and 10 lbs of vintage buttons I collected from estate sales, garage sales, and Ebay.

Wow, now that is some fantastic looking fireplace. Good job. It must have taken a long time to do that.

Beautiful!! Now I only have to wait another year or so to let the littlest Sharp boy outgrow his wanting to put things in his mouth LOL.

I like in particular how you coordinated your lamps on either end of the mantle with the button-mantle itself-- filling the bases with buttons is a great idea. I am a huge vintage lamp addict, and you've given me some ideas. :-)
