Old Fireplaces Are New Again - Part 3
Here is another renovated project. This fireplace is in a home that was built in the early 80s. The original fireplace was floor to ceiling red brick. I'm sure you're familiar with this type of design. Most people consider it an eye sore.
What can you do with an outdated fireplace? Rip it out, patch the walls with drywall, redesign the surround, the mantel and the hearth? Sure, but that's a lot of work, a lot of mess, and can get expensive.
We plastered with Marmorino right over the brick on this fireplace. No more grout lines. Smooth stone-like feel and texture.
What do you think?
Thank you Michelle @ Whirlygig Designs for making this project possible and making the rest of the room look so fantastic.
