Slate fireplace restored and refitted in East Dulwich (SE22), South East London.

We removed an original slate surround for restoration, originally the slate was covered in black laquer with a marbelised pattern. The customer felt it was too dark for the room but rather than replace it with a limestone/ white marble surround we stripped it and polished it out before rebuilding the surround and painting it white, it was then installed with a plain highlighted cast iron arch for use as a gas fire with slate hearth.
