In this video I show you how I turn my ugly 1970s brick fireplace into an awesome, new, fresh looking fireplace. I’ll start off saying that this is now a faux fireplace! I’m not going to be using it at all. In this DIY fireplace makeover, I’ll be recovering the brick fireplace with some nice, weathered looking stained wood. Wood is flammable, so make sure if you do what I show you in this video take the precautions to make the wood flame resistant. OR don’t use the fireplace.
This project is a pretty easy DIY for anyone familiar with regular hand tools and small power saws and drills. The fireplace remodel took me a couple days, but that is only because of paint drying and such. Once I had all the pieces to the faux fireplace everything went together pretty easy and took me a good part of a day. I’d say about 6-7 hours.
