Fireplace 2nd leg


Still to be done

There’s still gaps on hearth edge at each side at the very back too.  Just a bit of this and that should sort them.

Fix it to the wall and not care if the lighting goes and can’t get at it, or keep it removable and try to make it look fixed?  Hmmmm.

and the over mirror

I’ve taken away two of the panels but added a little of the stick-on glitter that matches the wall lights.

So far with this one – well it could be a deal neater, as usual, but it will do the job I reckon.

Getting there but all ready merry because the wallpaper join in the corner of chimney seems to match up 🙂

(Expecting (hoping) the carpet and hearth-rug will cover the ragged front hearth edge.)

    • You’re being v kind. It was fun to do and now I’m trying to see if the carpet will fit round it as it comes further forward than bargained for. Think I’ve got to paint more of the floor black around the edges to get something to work 🙂

  1. Looks like I was WRONG and you are RIGHT! The narrower mirror looks PERFECT with the tiled fireplace!!!
    Please tell me how you made the mirror to look engraved? I remember this style from when I was growing up, plus it looks like it could be translated easily as a Venetian Glass mirror, which is right up my alley!
    Meanwhile, your tiled fireplace looks GREAT and I especially like the way the mantle has turned out. The Visual weight of it is SPOT ON!

    • Our messages crossed (mine saying it was too late and smaller was a done deal and this of yours) so your message was much appreciated 😉 I took a bodkin/darning size needle to the faux glass with the plastic ‘skin’ still protecting the surface and scratched it on. I could only do small shapes for fear of dragging off the surface beneath along with the plastic protective film. Many thanks for your interest and support 😉
