Busty senior dates - Updating my fireplace

I LOVED the wall my wall in my bathroom turned out (you can see that HERE), so why not try it on my fireplace? I didn’t water down the paint enough, and it went on the brick way too thick.I disliked it so much, that I didn’t even take a picture of it.

Today, I want to show you the steps we took in creating our fireplace surround. To attach the wood to the brick you need to first drill a hole in the brick with a concrete drill bit. Next, add PL Adhesive by Locktite to the back of the wood…

Cy had to get pretty creative to make it work, but he did it. Then attach the wood to the brick using a concrete screw.

Thanks for all of your sweet comments on my Fireplace Makeover Reveal yesterday. We (mostly Cy) worked so hard on that fireplace surround, so it was great for us to read all the great positive feedback.

I felt like y’all were giving us a bunch of “high fives”, and it was awesome.

I have never liked our fireplace every since we moved in our home over a year ago. The fireplace had these four vents that were huge eyesores.
