Look what Jenny did to her friend's non-working fireplace:
I love this look. It will take a lot of wood to fill up our fireplace, but I love the rustic look it will bring to the room. Now - if I could only find that Moroccan rug somewhere for cheap. I had it in my grasps a few years back at a major rug sale event, but had no room for it at the time :( Maryam from My Marrakesh has some great choices and her prices are a fraction of the cost you'd find in the US. Email her for details.
