Decorative ideas for firewood storage roll into my thoughts on this first official day of fall.

In fall we spruce up and prepare our homes for the season, placing the emphasis on cozy and comfortable.
There’s nothing like a toasty warm fire in a safe and ready for the season fireplace to conquer and complement a crisp fall chill.
With that also comes the seasonal decorating project of making life easier.
Implementing decorative ways to house firewood, fire starters, fatwood, pine cones, newspapers, and safety matches at the ready is a sure fire way of marrying seasonal style with seasonal convenience.
Crisp fall days into chilly fall evenings into winter holidays frame a cozy and warm fireside narrative.

I’ll light the fire🔥
You put the flowers in the vase that you bought today
Staring at the fire for hours and hours while I listen to you
Play your love songs all night long for me, only for me
Come to me now and rest your head for just five minutes,
everything is good
Such a cozy room, the windows are illuminated by the
Sunshine through them, fiery gems for you, only for you
Our house is a very, very, very fine house with two cats in the yard
Life used to be so hard
Now everything is easy ’cause of you
And our la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la, la

This is where making home and hearth life easy with decorative ideas for firewood storage by the fireplace or fireplace adjacent enters the picture.
Coming up with unique and decorative options to house and hold firewood is not a huge challenge.
Copper pots, cauldrons, boilers, coal scuttles, and buckets in warm tones prove to be excellent fireplace focal points of visual interest.
Crisp and cold weather around the fireplace essentials can exist “out of the box” and in decorative harmony with the rest of your decor.
Pretty is as pretty stores.

Vintage and in the style of vintage wooden crates also do a fall fabulous job of storing firewood, fire starters, pine cones and the like.
A pine crate is lovely enough in its natural state, but if it’s not your first choice of finish let the fall decor project good times begin.
Stain or spray paint in your preferred designer color and/or add a transfer or stencil to customize.
So pretty in the firelight.
