Leather Living Room Sets – We bought our first family home in the mythical City of Robin Hood Nottingham. We had to extend our funds and be extremely creative as money was tight. This included utilizing our previous bath panel as part of the dcor from the room.
Challenge does not it? Well here is how it all came about.
The home we bought is in a very leafy suburb of town. My partner and I had stepped up moving to the area and opted to purchase the best house we could afford in the area. I guess we had taken to heart the mantra location, location’.
As a result we ended up with a actual fixer-upper that demanded massive renovation. In our house the floor boards and joists where rotten, the windows had changing plus we had new heating, gas and electrical services. The garden was marginally Jurassic looking although it did have some rose bushes in. We had taken on a massive money draining task.
Not to be discouraged about turning our newly acquired job we set. One of the attractive aspects of the house was all the features of of the 1930. This included fantastic also and doors which we got stripped some original cast iron fireplaces.
A characteristic was produced by the fireplaces in the living and dining room areas. Both fireplaces desperately needed restoring and had some work.
We used special chemicals to strip the soot that was old and scorch marks from the flames themselves. Then we maintained the total appearance and replaced and eliminated the wooden surrounds with new types which had a rustic feel.
The challenge came when we eliminated the hearth in our living space. Replacing this seemed to be really difficult. We didn’t have money which limited our choice of tiles. Actually we ended up looking at heaps of tile swatches from the budget ranges which whilst fine didn’t fit in with the theme of the room.
It was then that I had an idea that is inspired. A few days until we ripped out and replaced our previous bath from the family bathroom. Actually at this stage it was sitting on our drive waiting to be loaded to a skip and taken down to the dump. My partner had it was a shame and commented about the lovely marble panel. Get down it to be used as our newest fire hearth and my thought was to take this.
Chancing upon a stone mason took a quick look through a neighborhood small business directory and a few calls. I am glad we discovered that a professional as not only did he cut it but also offered us advice on the best way best to take care of a precious fire hearth.
We installed it quickly using cement to hold it. I took a visit and bought some matching tiles to go around the border of the fire itself.
The final result is outstanding and we find guests to our home commenting on the lovely feature fireplace in our room. Needless to say they are constantly amazed when we are clean and clarify our use of the previous bath panel.
