Want to give your fireplace a makeover? Follow along with me as I go from demolition to the final reveal on this DIY fireplace remodel!
With a hammer and chisel in hand, I tore apart our old, dated fireplace! There were a few surprises along the way that might make this whole fireplace remodel a little more complicated . . .
With the debris removed, it's time to build this fireplace hearth back up! I used cement backer board to bring the hearth level with the hardwood floors, but added a second layer to raise it up.
It may take a little extra work, but you CAN tile over a brick fireplace! I show the entire process, from leveling the brick with mortar to grouting the new tile, in this tutorial!
The design for this entire fireplace remodel started with this gorgeous trim! I wanted a narrow mantel and modern lines that work with any decor. I love how it turned out!
Finally, my fireplace remodel is complete (and just in time for Christmas, too!) Instead of a dated, boring fireplace, we have a fresh and modern centerpiece of the living room!
