Our Own Brick fire with Cantilevered Fireplace (Before)
The fireplace in our own residence was a true amount piece – cantilevered concrete fireplace, pink 2×8 brick with embedded quartz, broken tiles on the fireplace – an in-your-face mass dominating the area. Additionally, we tend to were desperately wanting storage for such mundane things as newspapers watching for recycling day, games, and art provides for the youngsters.
We used to steer through the front door and simply cringe at the pink monster that was the middle piece of our home.
After Fireplace Remodel
We engineered custom drawers below the cantilevered fireplace, and put in an identical custom mantle. The brick was faced in natural slate during a neutral however fascinating color, and therefore the mass was reduced by using textured sheetrock on top of the mantle to match the prevailing walls. (Ok, thus we tend to additionally cleaned up our house a trifle bit!)
