The Salon was crying out for a fireplace so I researched French fireplaces and
then set about trying to create one with what I had.
As you can see it's made up of bits'n'pieces!
The two wooden sides came off another piece of furniture I already had.
I figure if I have no use for some of the furniture I have lying around
it might as well be turned into something else.
I was going to leave it painted shabby and white or blue...
because I was just too lazy to figure out how to paint it marble.
I hadn't marbled anything for a long time and just couldn't be bothered figuring out how to do it again.
However, I soon realised it HAD to be marble.
Very pleased with the result!
It was actually quite fun marbling it after all.
Last Saturday the weather was very stormy here.
It was a good opportunity to stay inside and work on this room.
Not that anyone would notice most of what I did...I was just making things fit properly!
It's good now that the boring things are sorted.
View from the kitchen to the Salon.
Now I'm working on the kitchen.
It's Autumn here in New Zealand so there's a good chance of another rainy weekend
which means things might get done!
Hope you're all having a great week!
