Fireplace DIY

While I’m crafting Phil likes to do DIY. This is one of his recent jobs – tiling our dining room fireplace. The surround was in the house when we moved in and I think it’s the original 1930s surround,┬ábut I’ve since sanded it down and varnished it. The tiles also appeared to be original but they were dated & cracked so we decided to rip them out & replace them with red and white.
