I did a little rearranging over the weekend. I have all my firewood piled up outside in the carport and with these below freezing temperatures we have been having already this year, I thought it would make more sense to have my wood inside instead. I've thought about doing this for a while, but wasn't sure it would look too great with a pile of wood in my living room. Keeping warm is higher on my list, so in came the wood!
I cut a plastic garbage bag to put under it to catch all the debris.
I'm just keeping it like this for the winter, then I will put my sofa table back again.
Oh and before you get scared that some bugs may have snuck in with the logs, the freezing temps lately have most likely kept a lot of the bugs away. I hope. My mom was afraid I would bring a snake in!
I have actually seen this a lot in magazines and websites where there is wood piled up near a fireplace. Here's a photo I stumbled upon recently that I thought looked nice with the wood.
For those that have non-working fireplaces, decorating the inside of the fireplace with logs is also an option. I think this look is really creative.
