Now on to project #2! This has been ongoing for quite a while. The house came with this wood stove installed into the fireplace. The previous owners assured us that it worked quite well and kicked out a great deal of heat. I'm sure it did, but neither of us could stand the sight of it. It also stuck out into the living room and took up a great deal of space. We knew we wanted it gone, but the question was - how do we get rid of it? It easily weighed 400-500 pounds.
TA DA! DBF put up this lovely paneling, framed out the corners and even built a mantel! I love this man so very much. :) The plan is to hang a picture or large mirror above the fireplace. We just have to find the perfect one. The windows face this wall, so I think having a mirror here would be pretty.
We were toying around with some options and first had some flameless candles inside the fireplace. That didn't look quite right, so -
- 2 Staples 8.5" x 11" Copy Paper (500 sheet ream) $3.79 each (these were supposed to be $5.49 each according to the circular, cashier verified these are the right ones for the rebate so we'll see what happens), will get back ? as Easy Rebate (Limit 2) = should be FREE
- 2 Staedler Maxum Ballpoint Pens (extra bold, assorted colors) $5.99 each, will get back $5.99 each via Easy Rebate (Limit 2) = FREE
- 2 Kleenex double packs $2.99 each, will get back $2.99 each via Easy Rebate (Limit 2) = FREE
- Reusable Bag $1.49
- Used $10 reward and $17.03 of an $18 reward (very surprised to see this covered the tax - thought for sure it would beep and I'd have to get another bag), total was zero
