So this will be the first job- well second job, as the first job was painting the living room and bedroom white, which was done the day after we moved in.
This fireplace... Well... What can I say? I think it's hideous. It's sandstone, and feels like it belongs in a small chateau, not a small two bed cottage. Alas... It's there, and it's a working fireplace. You may wonder why we have boxes stuffed in there... This is because Clarence tried to scale the chimney. He is a terror for getting into TINY spaces, and loves to squeeze into anything his svelte shape will allow- often leaving Alabama behind... So when we caught him half way into the vent, we decided it would be best to just block up the fireplace and create more space- always the aim.
