Me too!!!! That's actually the spot I made it for, but I didn't really account for opening the woodstove door (minor details!), plus we really like drying clothes right there - and dripping wet clothes on top of dry wood is no good at all. If only I could just move the woodstove over a few feet..... Hmn..... ;) ~amanda

Dove Wing I just chose off a paint chip. I used eggshell on the walls. The trim is all Air 01 by Yolo Colorhouse, in semi-gloss. ~amanda
