Our last blog post was about the first step in our sunroom remodeling project: Painting Once we put new paint on the walls and ceiling, it was clear that something needed to be done with the fireplace. Picking an interesting color that goes well with the room but adds a little spice can be an excellent way to transform your living room in no time at all. Dedicate your fireplace mantel Christmas decorations to a collection of handmade crafts, sentimental gifts or special items from holidays your family has shared in the past.

Use fire-resistant materials on walls around wood stoves. I ran out of yellow pads, so plywood scrap will do. Each side of the fireplace is different, and each set of doors is slightly different as well – so it looks like I’ll need both sides of this plywood to do some cypher’n.

Because I was installing the stone inside the house, I didn’t need to put up a vapor barrier and could put the metal lathe directly on the drywall after patching it. Metal lathe is nasty, nasty stuff and will cut you in half if you are not careful. I used a router to add some detail to the top and then cut the three pieces.

Now you can’t use regular outlets like the ones …
