How to make a gorgeous pallet fireplace

There's nothing like the rush of beginning a new project that has the potential to completely change a room and the following idea gives quite the thrill. This DIY pallet fireplace is a simple yet high-impact way to upgrade your living space, adding warmth and coziness to any living room or bedroom with relative ease. Plus, you can rest assured know no one else will have a mantel like yours.
Of course, if you do decide to try this project there are a few things you should take into consideration first. For starters, you'll want to think about safety. It might be worth it to look into alternatives such as a fireplace insert or electric fireplace, rather than a wood-burning one if there isn't proper ventilation.

Secondly, you'll need to think about the style of fireplace you want to construct. Stacey of Addison Meadows Lane chose to frame the fireplace with a dramatic floor-to-ceiling covering that attached to shelving units and the wall behind it, letting the variety in the grain of wood shine through. It also supports a mounted TV. One commenter writes, "This might just be the most dreamy fireplace I’ve ever seen!" and we're inclined to agree.
YouTube user justanotherpulltab, however, chose to incorporate the little fireplace into a freestanding entertainment unit and stained the entire structure an elegant dark walnut. In contrast, 101 Pallet Ideas stuck to a more traditional mantel design that falls on the more rustic side of the spectrum.
No matter how you choose to construct your fireplace, it's clear that pallets prove their versatility time and time again. The only limit, truly, is your creativity.
