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. Looks good, but lots of problems with windows, sloped floors and a drafty open fireplace. We’ll use a 15 pane door with textured glass – just like the 1st floor bathroom door. The designs available in the market can be very different, some fireplaces have mantle surface like the traditional ones.

Mosaic pattern stone veneer consists of irregular pieces of natural stone for siding, facing, and cladding. Finishing a fireplace mantel is a rewarding experience; once it is done you can see how the new mantel enhances the look of the room.
If your mantel displays candles, sculptures or vases in equal measure on each side, try shaking up the scene on your hearth with a stunning set of fireplace tools at one end, and a gleaming wood holder at the other. We started by painting primer on the walls and ceiling of the sunroom.
