|Our 53 year old fireplace looks brand new thanks to Bar|
Keepers Friend liquid cleanser and lots of hard work
As it turns out, the fireplace doors weren't brass at all... they were just so unbelievably dirty after years of neglect, the color had changed.
Underneath all the dust, soot and general nastiness was a pristine condition set of aluminum and glass fireplace doors. They bring the room to life and are a perfect fit for the home. And after some deep scrubbing of the brick surrounding the firepleace (not shown), the room has been completely transformed. We love it!
|This photo, from the basement, shows what the fireplace used to look like... nope, that's not bronze you're looking at, just really dirty aluminum!|
|Start with some seriously nasty aluminum.|
