Fire Fox!

Better After reader Deb had a fireplace that was practically begging out loud for an upgrade.  “Looooook at me!  Look right here!  Look at this big, blank space around me!  There is major personality potential here in this region that I am wildly gesturing toward with my imaginary hands!”

Deb heard its cries, and in just a few short hours the fireplace gained a shiny new surround and lost its inferiority complex!  Great work Deb!
