My Phoenix Kitchener range is one such thing! I know it will look lovely in the kitchen.
Using oddments of wood I've made a chimney breast for it making sure it was a good fit
With some moulding I made the surround
Here's how it looked in place on the chimney breast
Again with some oddments of moulding and a brass tube I made up a towel rail
I cut two pieces of cornice to make the end pieces, drilled a hole in the side of each and slotted in the brass tube
Two coats of paint on the surround, hearth fitted and it looks ok I think.....
I will hide the wire for the fire behind the chimney breast
I plan to put the sink under the window.
I can't wait to start decorating this room now!
My next little buy is a beautiful, working grandfather clock which I'm hoping will fit in the hallway, but if it doesn't it will look just as nice on the landing I think. As long as it's easily seen when I open the door of the house as I've waited a long time to have a working one and I'm so pleased with it!
Another little bargain I found was a Bodo Henig treadle sewing machine. This is another item which I've saved up for and it really is such a beautiful piece and well worth waiting for. It has a lovely inlaid table top and the handle can be turned making the needle actually move up and down! A little work of art.
