Our reclaimed fireplace has finally been fitted and it's wonderful. I am thrilled with how it has turned out (and the money we have saved by going reclaimed). It is fab to have a working fire again because it has recently turned really cold in York, we even had a bit of snow yesterday. Brrr.

Anyway Ta Dah!

We used slate polish on the hearth and grate polish on the cast iron section so the whole thing is really sparkling. It is actually hard to believe that this is the same fireplace as the transformation is so complete. Here is a quick reminder of its original appearance. Haha!

I can't leave you with that hideous image, so here's one more photo of the finished article. So thrilled.



  1. Love the tiles! Where did you get them from? We need to get some hearth tiles for the fire place in our dining room.
