We bought this old faux fireplace at an estate sale last week. Made by Sears in 1974, it's designed to go against a wall, and comes with rolling, crackling, lighted logs and a fan/heater with dial control. The estate also had a matching one in avocado green, but someone had already taken it away. For ten dollars, I don't know why they wouldn't have bought this one as well- imagine them back-to-back in the center of a room... Nonetheless, our plan is to paint it white (aged white, the same as its wall) and replace the chrome with wood (patinated and slightly charred), or the same white and built out a little for a mantle, and put it in a future living room, 

as here, in Halldor Laxness' home in Reykjavik Iceland. (thanks F.A.B.)
