The fireplace on the main level of our house should be a beautiful focal point of the living area, but it was…. It is the same mortar used for applying the stone to the wall, except that I colored it using Quikret Cement Color It is a little un-nerving to pour some neon orange colored water into your cement mix and expect it to come out brown… but it did. The window jamb pieces are cut to size.
Maybe one year you and your family decided to visit a major city during the holiday season, such as New York or Washington D.C., and you have an exquisite souvenir that would make a beautiful centerpiece for your Christmas decorated fireplace mantel.
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.
My approach is either make it blend into the surroundings (my preferred method is drywall) or make it beautiful with new tile, stone or granite another solution is a new large mantle. So, whether you’re in search of a traditional, modern, wood or gas burning fireplace, or an outdoor gas fire pit , Acucraft Fireplaces can make your dreams a reality.
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.
