Boring and Flat to Cozy and Elegant.

Don’t have a fireplace in your home? Want one but don’t want a major renovation?

This fireplace wall was fairly easy to do and it transformed the space so much. It’s crazy how cozy a fireplace can make a space, even if it’s only and electric one.

Follow along with me and I will show you how I transformed a boring flat wall into a “stone” fireplace.

The boring before

The BeforeI feel like most would agree with me and think it’s safe to say this space was a bit on the boring side and could use some TLC.

I first decided how big I wanted the fireplace wall to be and now I wanted it to look. My wall was going to be 6’ long, would go floor to ceiling and it would have a mantel. I also decided I was going to have a space for my tv to be inset into the wall so that it didn’t stick paste the stone when it was mounted. I wanted a clean streamline look when you looked at it from the side.

Now that was all decided it was time to get building the frame.
