New Chimenea

We've wanted a chimenea for years but the kids were just too young and it would have been dangerous. We finally decided they are old enough so I went with a neighbor and bought this one. I bought a terracotta saucer to put on top to keep the rain out but we pondered how to keep the rain out the big "mouth" in the front.

I did some thinking then sketching and came up with an idea.

Hubby scoffed at me, so I took it upon myself to make it myself. I started it yesterday but was unable to complete it before he got home. I hid the whole works because I didn't want him to see it until completed. Boy is he going to be surprised when he gets home!!

Project cost: $0.00 I only used items we already had around the house.
I think I did a pretty good job.

What do you think?
