More than 12 years ago we bought our first family home in the legendary Robin Hood Town of Nottingham. Along with the tight money, we have to stretch our budget and be very creative. This includes using our old shower panel as part of the decor in the front room. Sounds like and an interesting challenge is not it? Well, that’s how it happened. The house we bought was in a really lush suburb. Both my partner and I have stepped into this area and decided to buy the best house we could afford in the best area.
I guess we have noticed the location, location, location of the ‘spell. Consequently we ended up with a real top-fixer that needs a massive renovation. In our new home all the floor boards and beams where rotten, the windows need to be replaced plus we need new electrical, gas and heating services. The garden was a bit jurassic in spite of the fact there were some fantastic rose bushes. All in all we’ve gotten in massive money-draining assignments. Do not be discouraged if we change the project we just got into the house. One interesting aspect of the house is all the original features of the 1930s.

This includes a fantastic internal door that we’ve released professionally and also some really good original cast iron fireplaces. The fireplace really creates a central feature in the dining and living area. But both fireplaces need some serious work and are in dire need of recovery. We use special chemicals to remove all old soot and scorch from the fire itself. Then we move and replace the wood surrounds with a new one that has a rustic feel and retains the overall look. The challenge comes when we move the fireplace in our living room. Changing this seems very difficult.
Firstly we do not have much money limiting our new tile choices. In fact we ended up seeing dozens of pile of tiles from a budget range that while nice did not fit the overall theme of the room. That’s when I had an inspired idea. A few days before we tore and replaced our old bath tub from the family bathroom. Actually it is currently sitting in the driveway of our house waiting to be put into a leap and taken to a garbage dump. My partner has commented on the beautiful black marble panel and how embarrassing to throw it away. The idea is to take this and cut it to use as our new fire fireplace. Find a mason just glimpse through local business directories and some phones. I’m glad we found a professional because he not only cut it to size but also offered us advice for taking care of the new fireplace.
