This product looks lovely in the photographs, but it is not what I would call a well-made piece of equipment.
I contacted the folks at Ashley before buying & was told it was made of pine. Although pine isn't the bed type of wood out there, it's easy to paint so I made my decision on the basis that I could paint this item a different color at some point if I want.
Well, it's engineered or manufactured "fake" wood - which is super cheap & easy to chip/shred. One of the pieces had a chunk of pain missing from it the size of a dime, so now I need to go out & try to find some matching white paint, which as you know, is never easy.
The screws use allen keys - and at one piont, I had to unscrew 2 of them, and couldnt - the allen key stripped the screw.
Also, they did not provide me with enough screws or washers, so that required a separate trip to the hardware store.
It was not easy to put together - took me about 4 hours. For $XXX, we should get real wood & all the screws/washers we need.
I can't imagine the hassle it would be to pack this up & return it. The cost would be prohibitive. So, I'll probably hang onto it for a few years - then buy an actual antique wooden mantel and use the fireplace insert for it.
My friend bought a gorgeous fireplace on XXX for less money - and it was 100% mahogany. Too bad I couldn't get that one.
I so love this fireplace! I had a "hearth" built, about 12 in. in height, and tiled on top to make it look even more authentic. It is about 6 inches bigger around than the base of the fireplace, clad in white beadboard. I love the gel fuel option. You can have a little fire, a bigger fire, no muss, no fuss!
received the fire place in a flat box... it took quiet a while for me to put together. ..someone with carpenter skills would not be a problem or take so long...I had a carpenter build a hearth around the bottom and attach the fireplace to the wall it looks nice.. i am getting ready to order another one for my granddaughters tree house
Hello maprich, Materials: Wood, metal, cast concrete. Dimensions: 41.64 inches high x 48.03 inches wide x 13.78 inches deep. So I think it would hold a Flat Screen TV.overstockcustomercare1 on Dec 9, 2013

Is there a door in front of the flame or is it open? Just wondering about safety issues with kids in the house. on Mar 30, 2012Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
For all our GEL fireplaces, there is a mesh screen that is included in the firebox. There is no door, but there is a screen that covers the front of the firebox, and the flame is behind it.overstockcustomercare1 on Apr 3, 2012
