White sprayed electric fireplace

December 20th, 2010

We finally got our vintage fireplace sprayed white and lugged up to the apartment (I’m very proud of Juli). The burnt orange was pretty cool, but I’m happy that we got it sprayed a simple white.

Tim from Beresford Inc. did an amazing job keeping all the details intact, including this retro “Log” logo.

We picked up an extension flue at Home Depot and the little tin cap which finishes off the top, but also has an open vent for the fan.

The faux logs are pretty quirky, but they do set the mood. I’m still toying with painting the brass handles black, just for simplicity sake.

  7. Ohhh I’m so glad you guys painted it white! It looks great, and will look perfect once you end up painting the brass handles. Also, so happy to see your new url – kitka.ca. Is that a new thing?

  9. Looks great! I think the handles would look better black, but also look nice as is. You guys have got us considering buying an old antique stove fireplace for our living room. Even though it doesn’t work, I’m hoping it will look as cosy as this! :)

  10. i don’t think the brass should be painted. it’s a nice quirky detail and an original one at that. painting the brass black would be like painting the “log” logo white. it’s pleasantly strange, and in my opinion should stay that way. The body and flue look amazing though, fantastic job!
