The Woodstove Is Staying

No matter how hard I tried, I could not convince my hubby to replace the woodstove with a gas fireplace.  He just loves having his woodstove so I just gave up in favor of what he wanted.  He is after all, so very generous and lets me do what I want (except replace the woodstove) when it comes to the interior of our home. 

Much to my surprise, after putting up the picture frame wainscoting, the woodstove doesn’t look bad.

  I absolutely love the architectural details the picture frame wainscoting has given to our home.

Although, I may not have gotten that gorgeous fireplace with a mantel, I still have my little mantel shelf.  I’ll just keep on decorating that and just admire  everybody else’s beautifully decorated fireplace mantels.

Thanks for stopping by and may the Blessings of this joyous season find it’s way into your home.

Happy Easter

  1. Oh Gail, your room is stunning. I love the wainscoting. It looks beautiful. I agree, the wood stove is just fine. I really like your little mantel shelf. I don't have a fireplace either, but your shelf works beautifully. I love the vignette you've arranged on it. So clever to use the frame around the clock. Love it all. Thanks so much for joining TTT. Hugs, Marty

  4. Love the moulding you have added. I dream of putting some in my house one day. Love the stove. I'm sure the smell is great too. I love a good fire on a cold day.

  5. Oh well, sometimes you gotta know which battles to fight, Gail, right? I'm with you, though, my hubby doesn't say anything about what I do in the house, either. The molding makes such a nice backdrop to your furniture and accessories.

  8. Gail, that is a good looking wood stove and the way the cost of fuel and energy is going it is wise to have it. We have a wood stove and a gas fire place but it does not have a mantle! ♥O

  11. Gail, I think your mantle shelf is totally amazing! Love your wood stove, too. The way you have it decorated makes it look so cozy. I think I would rather have it than a fireplace! Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm adding you to my follow list! :)

  12. Gail! I LOVE IT!
    I think the way you have it now is beautiful. The new picture frame wainscot and the black on the chairs and shelf all complement each other. To me the wood stove is the icing on the cake.
    Be blessed!

  16. I truly love this! Your waincotting is just perfect, your decor of it is lovely. Although the woodstove is rustic with all your beautiful decor, it doesn't look it anymore...you did very well. I'm your latest follower, I'm at TTT, hope to see you.
    Happy Easter

  17. I think your room looks wonderful! I understand about the wood stove. I have other issues that I have to "compromise" in order to decorate. I guess they live there too!! lol

    I must say that the stove looks great but I know it just wasn't the look you wanted. The walls look awesome.

    Have a great day and talk to you later!

  18. The picture frame molding is beautiful!!!
    Your mantel is lovely, even if you don't have the fireplace to go with it. Sometimes we have to make the best of things with what we have, right?
    I have had to learn that, too.
    Hugs, Cindy

  21. It's beautiful! I'm DYING for a wood stove, especially a nice VT Castings one with a shiny enamel finish like yours! But MY husband won't put one in our fireplace because HE won't give up his open flame fireplace! So my heat goes right up my chimney whenever we have a fire and the rest of the house is freezing and only in the room with the fireplace is it warm. Husbands!

    You've done a beautiful job though. I'm your newest follower. Stop by and visit my blog sometime!

  24. I love your room and the woodstove.
    We have a fireplace that is now gas and I would rather have a stove or have the fireplace burning wood. I miss the warmth of a real fire, when the lights go out from weather, it really comes in handy. Your room is so nice and the shelf mantle is wonderful, you have it decorated so nice.
