Leather Living Room Furniture – Just over 12 years ago we purchased our first family home in the City of Robin Hood Nottingham. As money was tight we had to stretch our budgets and be tremendously creative. This included using our tub panel as part of this dcor from the front room.
Challenge that is intriguing and sounds like doesn’t it? Well here is how it came about.
Is in a very leafy suburb of the city. My spouse and I had awakened moving to this area and opted to buy the best home we could manage in the place that was best. I guess we’d taken to heart the mantra location, location’.
Because of this we ended up using a real fixer-upper that demanded renovation. In our home the floor planks and joists where rotten, the windows had shifting plus we had heating, gas and electrical solutions. The backyard was somewhat Jurassic looking though it did have some rose bushes in. In all we’d all taken on a cash.
Not to be discouraged about turning our recently acquired job we set. One of the attractive facets of the home was all the features of of the 1930. This included fantastic doors which we have stripped professionally and also some cast iron fireplaces.
The fireplaces produced a characteristic in the dining and living room areas. However both fireplaces had some work and needed restoring.
We used chemicals to strip off all the soot that was older and scorch marks in the fires themselves. Then the surrounds were removed and replaced by us with new types which had a feel and preserved the total look.
The challenge came when we removed the hearth in our space. Replacing this appeared to be really hard. Firstly we did not have money which restricted our choice of tiles that are fresh. In fact we ended up searching from the budget ranges which whilst nice did not fit in with the entire theme of the room.
It was then that I had an idea. A few days before we ripped out and replaced with our tub from the family room bathroom. In fact at this point it sat on our driveway waiting to be loaded to a jump and taken down to the dump. My spouse had commented about the marble panel that is lovely and also it was a shame to ditch it. Make down it to be used as our fire hearth and my thought was to take this.
Finding a rock mason just took a quick look through a few calls and a local small business directory. I am happy we found that a specialist as not only did he cut it but also offered us advice on how best to take care of a new precious fire hearth.
We installed it fast using concrete to hold it in place. I then took a visit and purchased some tiles to go round the border of the flame itself.
The final result is outstanding and we find guests to our home commenting on the lovely feature fireplace in our front room. Obviously they are amazed when we come clean and clarify our resourceful use of our tub panel.
