I am in desperate need of a new fireplace. We (the lovely Tim and I) have had a hideous gas fire and back boiler for the last 5 years. I wish I'd taken a photo of it for you, though I think I'd be too embarrassed to share it! We finally got a brand new boiler (yay!) but it has left us with a gaping hole in the living room (boo!).
We decided to be thrifty and bought this reclaimed little beauty from ebay for £156.
Yes, I know it's hideous but bear with me - more to follow.
