Looks fine like it is IMO...maybe a lil stove black on the exposed connector/liner...and a heat shield for that poor TV! ;)
I agree. Being an off center firebox it looks better as small as possible or no big surround. I need to think about the tv heat shield. It’s on a full articulated mount. So I kinda want the shield mounted to the tv. It’s probably only going to see 40 loads in an average winter unless we start spending way more time down there.
