Fireplace update

The fireplace is coming along! We've heard that our cowl and flue reducer are now ready - we just have to go for a long drive to get them. Oh well, soon! The fireplace is painted as of today, too. The before pic:

The after pic:

What do you think of the colour? Marty and I are both happy with it.. we're just hoping everything looks ok together - the oven, the stone hearth, the paint.. it could look like a disaster! ;)

We've been having some very chilly weather lately. The winds have been a little strong in the night as well. The peas and beans are all blown-over!

Keeping warm until next time!


  1. I love the colors you used on the fireplace. It looks very warm and inviting. I think it looks classic. Hurry up oven before you two freeze.

    I hope the peas and beans survived the wind.

  2. Black is a good colour to absorb heat and hide soot. So you've picked the perfect colour. :)

    The gloss will fade with a bit of use too.

    I'd love a fireplace at the moment *brrr* but we may have to wait until next year. In the meantime I can adire yours'. :)

  3. Love the fireplace. Can't wait to see everything installed!
