thought it fit right in with the craziness that is our second floor.
We're not sure how much heat it will contribute, but we have our fingers crossed because we love the way it fits in the space.
Our plan is to tile (yes, more tile!) the wall behind it and create a hearth with a piece of slate left by the previous owner. The same tile will be used as a border around the slate. A sample of the tile is shown below, currently being used a a cat buffet.
