Fireplace update

This is a transformation of a brick fireplace to house a flat panel tv and brighten the room with a marble face instead of brick. All of the wiring for the tv and surround sound system is housed within the mantel. I furred out the brick below the hearth with cement board before tiling and anchored furring strips to the brick to create a wiring channel and provide mounting points for the paneling above the mantel.

During the construction of the building, the fireplace is needed to add. It is especially an essential one for some places where the winter washington dc guided tours climate is very strong. The fireplace helps to handle the climate for the family.

It looks really great after renovating the fireplace. Instead of brick, they are using the marble peace during the reconstruction. Anyway, this arrangement gives a beautiful look to the tips to feel better home in that area. I am looking here for more updates.

The idea of setting the fireplace is really interesting. I am going to try out the idea you have provided in the post and the color combination is good but I really prefer dark shades for the fireplace so I will definitely update my concept soon Cannabidiol oil
