Missing fireplace in the bedroom number 2 bothered us for a while. We wanted to find something similar to what we have got in our master bedroom. We trawled through numerous antique shops including our favourite, Battlesbridge Village, but the stock wasn’t sufficient, and what we found was just too expensive (£300 for a restored fireplace!).
We love a bargain, and we completely don’t mind doing the hard work, so we checked eBay, and look what we have found. Absolutely beautiful, original fireplace, which requires a lick of paint and an easy to build surround. It cost under £70 (£39 plus petrol to pick it up). Bargain!
