What should I do with my fireplace?

January 3, 2020

We are not going to actually use the fireplace in our house — in the dining room of a 1900 Victorian.

Here it is before we moved in.

And now. I just removed the 1980s shiny brass trimmed screen.

Up close in all its glory:

I bought some black paint to paint the firebox, but maybe I shouldn’t do that? Maybe go with a gray? Then put something decorative inside, like candles or just a basket with dried hydrangeas or something? It’s not very big.
