Old Brick Fireplace Revamp


For a quick fix I painted the bricks black. I got tired of looking at it so I went on a mission over Thanksgiving weekend.

I still have to frame out the hearth a little wider. Going to be nailing down some chunky quarter round. And I will be adding some stone, rope looking tiles around the fire opening.

Here are some action shots...

Old and busted - with a nice custom smoke guard.

That's cool how you can watch TV while you work.

Me, I would have screwed my thumb to the mantle by accident.

Nice work!
