3 Piece Living Room Set – We bought our first family house in the City of Robin Hood Nottingham. Be creative and we needed to extend our budgets as cash was tight. This included utilizing our bath panel as part of this dcor in the front room.
Challenge that is intriguing and sounds like doesn’t it? Well here is how it came about.
The house we bought is at a very suburb of town. My spouse and I had stepped up moving to the area and opted to buy the best house we could afford in the area. I guess we’d taken to heart the mantra location, location, location’.
Because of this we ended up using a actual fixer-upper that demanded renovation. In our house all the floor boards and joists where rotten, the windows needed changing plus we had heating, gas and electric services. The garden was Jurassic although it did have a few rose bushes in looking. All in all we had taken on a massive cash draining job.
Not to be discouraged about turning our project into a 15, we set. One of the attractive aspects of the house was all the features of of the 1930. This included fantastic also and internal doors which we got stripped professionally some cast iron fireplaces.
A central feature was really produced by the fireplaces in the living and dining room areas. Both fireplaces needed some job and desperately needed restoring.
We used chemicals to strip all the soot off and scorch marks in the flames themselves. Then we replaced and eliminated the wooden surrounds with new types which had a rustic feel and preserved that the total look.
The challenge came after we eliminated the hearth in our living room. Replacing this seemed to be really hard. Primarily we did not have a lot of cash which restricted our selection of new tiles. Actually we ended up searching in the budget ranges which whilst nice did not fit in with the theme of the room at dozens of tile swatches.
It was then that I had an inspired idea. A few days until we replaced with our tub from the family room bathroom and ripped out. Actually at this stage it was sitting taken down to the dump and on our driveway waiting to be loaded to a skip. My spouse had commented about the lovely black marble panel and the way it was a shame to dump it. Get it cut down to be used as our fire hearth and my idea was to take this.
Finding a stone mason took a quick look through a neighborhood small business directory and a few calls. I am happy we found that a professional as not only did he cut it but also provided us advice about the best way to take care of a precious fire hearth that is new.
We installed it fast using cement to hold it. I took a trip and bought some tiles to go around the edge of the fire itself.
The end result is exceptional and we find guests to our house commenting on the feature fireplace in our front room. Obviously they are amazed when we come clean and clarify our resourceful use of our old tub panel.
