Fireplace Makeover With Details and Before and After Pictures. The inside of the firebox will be painted with black, heat resistant paint sometime before winter arrives :). You can find two more of our makeovers here and here Please feel free to ask me any questions in the comments section and I will do my best to answer them.
I had a gallon of my favorite BEHR RED Paint at home. This project is a good alternative for those of you that desire to give your outdated fireplace a new look without all the mess that tearing it down brick by brick would create. Even the fireplace has a touch of modern with it’s straight lines and smooth surface, but it’s softened by the traditional mantel.
Below you can see the photos of the finished thermal mass stove. For the sides, I just smoothed some caulk directly on and painted a straight line after the fact. Taping off the edges helped to keep the caulk line clean. To begin with my husband and I do not like brass, light pink, flower curtains, and the lack of personality in our trailer.
After the classroom element of the workshop, we got down to business. It looks so beautiful and fresh and totally transforms the room. To accomplish this, we first built and installed a lightweight stove pipe system inside the old chimney. MOD PODGE (found at any craft store) is very important in a travel trailer.
The natural stone costs more than manufactured hearthstones but for most fireplaces it’s not too large of an area so the difference in cost may be doable. In case you missed it, in Monday’s post I blogged about painting the bookcases and adding new moulding and hardware Today I’m going to give you the low-down on designing the stone veneer fireplace.
