Lack fireplace

Lack fireplace

Materials: Lack racks, pax frame, wood

Description: I bought myself an ethanol fireplace, but it looked quiet lonely… so I decided to pimp it up a bit.

2 Lack racks (110cm) and 1 Lack rack (smallest one, don’t know the size), a Pax frame and some wood. Description isn’t needed I think, quite obvious what I did.

      i am so sorry, i still have no idea what you mean… isnt a pax frame usually huge, like very tall? is the fireplace in the picture not attached to the room’s wall? Sorry, i must be an idiot. I very much appreciate your explanation because i love this hack! THANK YOU!

      the word “frame” is a little bit mistakable. I think the word we are looking for is “shelf” – the wooden board you put your clothes on in a pax wardrobe. In the picture it looks like it was used like an extra wall – it was build in beetween the wood piles.
