I really admired those home who has a very nice fireplace shelves. I been wanting to have that in our living room, that way I can put our old photos on top or maybe a nice flower on top of the fireplace shelves, that would be look nice to look at especially on winter that most household spend some of their time in front of the fireplace. Its nice to sit with your family in a warm fireplace especially when its really cold out side. I am not really into cold because I grow up in a tropical country so it is a big change and a lot of adjustment on my part. But anyway, the house we bought don’t have a fireplace but we might get an electric fireplace this winter!
