Fireplace and Mantel

Project by Todd Thomas posted 12-23-2008 08:08 PM 3924 views 1 time favorited 10 comments Add to Favorites Watch

In house that we flipped, we redid the fireplace brick had been painted so we cut the face or 1st layer of brick off and re bricked it putting in a arch with a mirror and built a new mantel.

MRTRIM After we cut the face/first row of brick off we bricked up to a point and just set this old square mirror we had laying around that was left in the house when we bought it and bricked over it.

Nicely done. If only I had a fire place. I’d even settle for a wood stove!

We put a diamond blade on a circular saw, calked a couple of lines on each side, used a respirator and went to town….
