Bedroom fireplace....... by cutekitty

Bedroom fireplace.......

.......another of the lovely fireplaces in our house. When we moved in (nearly 20 years ago) the last occupant of this room was such a heavy smoker that every surface was heavily stained with nicotine smoke.....we had to take bleach to the walls and surfaces so we could see any colour other than brown (and to get rid of the dreadful smell).....this lovely fireplace emerged after several hard scrubs with bleach.......
That's super. Love it ...but i can imagine what hard work it must have been to bring it back to life

Wondering how many fireplaces you have in your wonderful house...

Wow - that must have been such a joyful discovery. Underneath the grime it looks in good shape and now - well cared for!

What a beautiful discovery when all the brown nicotine stains were removed !

That is a beautiful fireplace, we have fires in our bedrooms too but not the lovely arched shape like this.
