Almost seems a shame to mess it up by putting a fire in it.
A few years back I sprayed a few accents on an oak stove with high temp silver and then applied a coat of stove polish. The nice thing is, with a damp cloth you can either bring out a slight hint of the underlying paint or make it really stand out. There are quite a few high temp colors available and I'm thinking about trying a dark metallic gray on the next one followed by stove polish.
I wish they made stove polish in different colors, I'll bet a colored polish and paint combination would look great on a kitchen stove.
I couldn't find a cove moulding to match the faux copper ceiling so I used the same technique. Sprayed the moulding with copper colored paint, added a little water to an almost empty jar of stove polish and brushed it on. There is just enough oil in the stove polish that once it's diluted with water it beads up and drys blotchy. Buffed it with a shoe shine brush and gave it a coat of clear.
I think you have your last comment reversed........ It would be a shame to let it sit there without a fire in its belly. And it will be back in action this fall.
The double heater pipe is going to connect into my plenum with a series of dampers and circulated throughout the house using the stoker blower motor.
When its time for the stoker to take over, the dampers will be switched over and the flow reversed using the double heater as the room register.
