Re-imagining existing space between indoors and outdoors can be a gamechanger! This American Mist Ledgestone fireplace turns a simple wall into an open-air sitting area, and with the addition of a TV, it’s a great spot to take a break from daily demands, or catch up in between to-dos. Transforming existing pieces of the home can make a drastic impact and turn a "dead space" into a functional one.
