Thanks so much! It's beautiful! Is that a wood burning fireplace? Is it there a special treatment for the wood to make it safe for a hearth?

I painted the wall in black chalk paint. The empty frame simply hangs on the wall.

I love the huge framed mirror where did you get it

How about 100 bucks! The frame is plastic, and it was basic black, so I did a gel stain treatment to make it look like wood.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Erin Lang Norris added this to Step-by-Step: Dress Your Home in Velvety Black
Accent wall. This ribbon of black makes the separation of the living and dining area much more pronounced than a light-colored wall would. A wall that doesn't span across much of the floor is an ideal place to try this out.
Laura Gaskill added this to 16 Ways to Shake Up Your Summer Bar
Add a creative touch with chalkboard paint. With a swipe of chalkboard paint (in classic black or any color you fancy), you can draw attention to your bar tray. For a party, you could even write the evening's signature drink recipe directly on the wall.
Jenn Hannotte / Hannotte Interiors added this to 10 Quick Solutions for Last-Minute Holiday Problems
Problem: You don't want everyone crowding into the kitchen for drinks.Solution: A makeshift bar.Here's one area I don't have a lot of trouble being prepared for: the bar. Find a surface — you can repurpose a bathroom cart, an old hutch or a dresser. (Moving a piece of furniture comes with the bonus of making your home feel refreshed and ready for entertaining.) Add a fun chalkboard with drink recipes, like the one shown, to complete your custom speakeasy.
