Updating a fireplace

We decided to put all of the tiles horizontally, but you can mix things up and place them vertical too.

There are square and rectangle stones also provided in the box, but we chose only to use the smaller, rectangular ones for this look. We opened the premixed adhesive and with a putty knife, spread a generous amount to the back of each stone.

I’d been trying to ‘live’ with our green marble fireplace because, let’s face it, it’s MARBLE. If you have a hacksaw or a masonry blade for your circular saw, you’re all set. Here’s how our fireplace used to look: And here’s how it looks, after we installed Air Stone: Want to give this a try at home?

But, like many elements in the world of décor, things go out of style. Don’t want to be bothered with the messy task of mixing grout? Air Stone is applied with a pre-mixed adhesive, right over your existing surround.* That’s right – no demo required. Here’s how: We first took the box of Air Stone tiles and laid them on the floor in their individual packages according to color.

Our fireplace surround recently got a quick makeover with the help of black high heat enamel by Rust-oleum.

It was originally a brass color that I decided to paint brown a couple years ago.

This post originally appeared on here back in 2012 from Monica from East Coast Creative and is by far in the top 5 posts on Infarrantly Creative.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.I drew black lines on the photo below to show you where they should be cut. For a wall installation you may not need corner stones, but for my fireplace I needed them to go around the inner edge. Cut it on the face side of the stone, not the back side. Make sure the first row is level, for it will be the foundation for all the rows above it.has a “Class A” fire rating and is safe to use around typical fireplaces. I started to do this and realized when I got to the top of the fireplace – the last stone may not fit and I wanted the top stones to be whole since this is the most visible section of the facade.
