Finished with Pot Belly Stove

I set the base of the stove on "furniture cups" to protect the carpet.

The Finished Project

I used a small lamp with a dim bulb to let the stove act as a decorative lamp stand.  
The stove is a deep black and I couldn't get the details to show in this photo.

The hardest part after moving the heavy sections of the stove was inserting four screws and nuts to prevent it from shaking.  Finding the right sizes and reaching into the stove made it difficult. But now I'm finished.

  1. I love it but am maybe a little sad it doesn’t get to do what it was meant to do. Well done on making it look fantastic.

  2. Your pot belly stove looks great, but to bad it is not in a location where it can be used. Nothing like a hot fire in a stove to take the winter chill off.

    1. It's a nice place to hide, especially when it's cold outside.

    1. It's funny how four screws can be so difficult to tighten.
