Restoration and fitting in Brentwood (TW8), West London.

We removed an antique original Victorian cast iron surround and Victorian cast iron  tiled insert fireplace for restoration. Once back in the workshop it was all sandblasted in house to get it back to the bare metal of the original casting. From there a light coat of black paint was applied before everything was polished to produce a pewter like effect, the remaining black paint in the depth of the detail makes everything stand out and makes a stunning fireplace. Once refitted, we tiled the hearth with the customers own tiles. The fireplace was fitted as a purely decorative feature, maybe one day housing a gel burner. Pics up soon.
