Fire complete


Well with the exception of the new paint job to be done on the fireplace itself... still haven't made a decision on that one yet... but at least my new fire back is now secured in place & boy did it make a difference to the room temperature last night... it was so much more snug than before... just wish we had gotten rid of the fire years ago & we'd have saved ourselves a fortune in gas bills by now.... we've still got the vent to close over but that will be tackled over the next few weeks as it means plastering & redecorating... yuck... I hate the mess that causes.
Rob did cut the backing for me but apart from that I completed the whole job myself so I'm rather proud of my handy work on this one... lol

Good job! This looks really neat! I quite like it as it is.. How about an undercoat of brown, then white emulsion (and/or crackle paint) on top, all distressed and sanded down? To look like driftwood? Just a thought! :o)

How's Buddy bunny doing?
