On a snowy day like today, wouldn’t we all like to be warm and cozy next to a glowing fireplace? Here’s a photo of one of KC Restoration’s favorite fireplaces that got our finishing touch of a custom metal patina.

McQuaid Brothers, the contractors of the pictured residence in Mission Hills, used metal walls, a fireplace surround and hearth fabricated by Gieske Custom Metal Fabricators of Kansas City. They turned to KC Restoration for our expertise in delivering custom patinas. We applied a beautiful black patina to the walls; the hearth and fireplace surround received a mixture of two patinas to create the rich brownish colors you can see in the photos. Together the patinas make for a glowing fireplace we’d love to be next to today or any day.
