Our living room is mighty cozy these days now that we installed a gas fireplace. Wood prices are extremely expensive right outside of Boston, not to mention it takes a lot of work to lug the wood inside every time you want a fire. Without further ado,
here's a WAY before photo:
Here's a before of the dirty, dirty fireplace that we never ended up needing to clean!
We have plans to replace the red tile with black granite, but that will have to wait. We've got more important things like, er, the kitchen. The fireplace comes with a remote that allows you to set the temperature in the room, it's pretty nice! Since we got the fireplace we've turned the heat off in the rest of the house since we spend most of our time in the living room anyway. Who knows what our gas bill will be like this month.
