Which is not to be confused with ‘having the painters in’
This is our dining room fire place, which we only ever use a few times a year (unlike the lounge open fire which gets used daily from Oct through to March) due to the fact that it didn’t draw very well so would make the house smell Smokey.
We purchased a wood burning stove which has been sat in the dining room and been used as a dumping ground for all miscellaneous items, that is until this week, when Mr D decided to make the hole bigger to house said wood burner.
Notice I didn’t even get to move my china from the shelves before he took action.
I’m more than a teeny bit excited as having a wood burner in that room means we will be able to load it up and leave it, unlike an open fire which we would never leave un attended.
The plasterer will make the hole prettier, and soon we will be sitting in front of our new fire place, probably with a cup of mulled wine.
To be continued……..
Do you have an open fire in your house? When we moved in to our house these fire places were covered with old gas fires, which we soon ripped out :)
Roll on winter
