So, I really really want a fireplace.
A real wood and fire, chimney, and smoke fireplace.
But, I live mid-block.
All the original chimneys are long gone.
So what is a girl to do?
I considered just building a mantle.
I have been on the fence about an electric fireplace.
I looked at vent free gas.
FINALLY … I settled on a Gel Fuel from Overstock.com
I spent $266 total, including my ridiculously cheap $1 shipping.
Ordered it this morning, and it already shipped!
I figured it this way … if the fire part is super cheesy (think catering burners) – I can just use it as a mantle. I think the wood work is very pretty. And hey, I have spent $266 in worse ways.
I can not WAIT for it to arrive! Now I have a formal front room to plan around it!
