Fireplace Makeover

Here’s an outdated brick fireplace that was quite simply, ugly. Maybe in it’s day, it was nice, but not anymore.

We knocked off the existing brick mantle, framed around the brick surround and anchored in some 2X8s to support a TV and a new wood mantle. We ran some PVC conduit to hide the cables and then added cement board to give us a good surface for tiling.

A beautiful gas insert was installed to complete the transformation. Pretty proud of this one:
