The old fireplace in josh's house is completely filled in. So it doesn't work. He's had a gate in front of it with "fireplace tools" beside to give the feeling of a fireplace. since those weren't really necessary we gave them to Goodwill to open up the space a bit. that left a blank canvas. perfect for some chalking...
and now...the final product!
options are endless!
