Yes. It is made from a mirror and brick pavers. I painted it and added trim. You can read more about it here - http://www.twostorycottage.com/2010/05/faux-fireplace.html

It is actually a side table that I got from JC Penney online. I added the larger round top (meant for a decorator table) and painted it.

I LOVE the stone on your fireplace. Would you be willing to supply the manufacturer, style, and color of the stone/brick? Also, is the mortar just "natural", or did you use a specialty color.

Sorry, I didn't reply sooner! I didn't realize I had a question. The stone is actually flat brick pavers. They were red when I put them up and I painted them white and then added a brown glaze. You can read about it if you copy and paste the link below. http://www.twostorycottage.com/2010/05/faux-fireplace.html

Pangaea Interior Design, Portland, OR added this to Could Your Living Room Be Better Without a Sofa?
Looks like more than one person has decided that a piano is a better option for their space than a sofa.
You can fill your fireplace with anything. A mirror placed inside this faux fireplace adds dimension and an unexpected reflection of the room.
Amy Renea added this to Put Pianos Into Play
If space is limited, try placing a baby grand in lieu of a chair in a circular setup.
