I live in a smallish flat in the middle of Aberdeen with my lovely, and patient, boyfriend and our two furr babies – Biffy and Clyro. We love our little nest but it is definitely in need of some TLC. There was a fireplace in the original building but because we don’t live in a Nat King Cole song where we can actually roast chestnuts by an open fire it was boarded up.
So this is what our wall looked like before…
So in order to inject a little magic into our living room I took to Gumtree and found a gorgeous rich mahogany fire surround , for a fiver!! That’s right, a mere five british pounds.
We then managed to find a gorgeous piece of granite and wood edging, which I spent a glamourous Saturday night staining.
