Updating a stone fireplace

31-Aug-2018 13:34

I have been doing my best to work with that extra gap by using swags and banners whenever I decorate the fireplace, but it is always A really noticeable large blank open space. The other thing I didn’t like about it was the travertine blends in with the wall and the mantel. I knew that redoing the fireplace with traditional methods was going to be a really expensive, so I”ve been putting it off.But then I saw this product at Lowe’s and I had a lightning bolt moment.I could use FAUX stone to get the look of a stone fireplace, but without the expense or headache of installing an actual stone fireplace.So I contacted the people at Airstone and they sent me a few boxes to try. I was able to completely transform my entire fireplace in less than 5 hours.Stone veneers, sometimes called Faux Stone, Decorator Stone, or Manufactured Stone are perfect for that stone fireplace you are dreaming of.These stone veneers are light-weight and don’t need any additional structural support.All the latest Design and Decorator magazines show beautiful stone fireplaces as the centerpieces of their traditional, transitional, rustic, or contemporary rooms.North Star Stone creates a fireplace design that can transform your room with a Custom Stone Veneer Fireplace in the style and color of stone veneer of your choice.

Take a look, pick your favorite, and don't settle for that ugly, old fireplace!Alan and North Star Stone was a great choice for our fireplace refinish.We were very happy with the process, scheduling, timing, and ultimately how the fireplace turned out.It isn’t high-end, big, or trendy – just a house that has all the components to fit with my personal style. If you can ice a cupcake and cut a French baguette in half with a bread knife then you have all the skills you need to create a stone façade just about anywhere in your home.The DIY project I completed for this post is getting that “house in my head” a little closer to reality. I gathered all the pamphlets to read when I got home.
