Country & Primitive
Monogram primitive wall decoration. Barnwood frame, glass removed. Gingham scrapbook paper, rusty chicken wire, and then a wood craft-store letter, sanded, painted white, then wood-stained. Screwed letter to back of frame, which also holds chicken wire and scrapbook paper to the back of the frame. Tied a big burlap bow through the chicken wire, put the whole thing back in the frame, and voilà!
Very hobbity: however the fire place is a focal point in a country home. So no matter the condition of the fireplace, always include things around the FP that pertain to it's use and it brings the warmth back in. Include rustic iron, tea pot, old or new wooden spoons, fire pokers, dry herbs around the FP, roast nuts, favorite tins of tea to go with your teapot etc.
