Fireplace update

Project by rrdesigns posted 01-23-2011 01:46 AM 6803 views 3 times favorited 4 comments Add to Favorites Watch

This is a transformation of a brick fireplace to house a flat panel tv and brighten the room with a marble face instead of brick. All of the wiring for the tv and surround sound system is housed within the mantel. I furred out the brick below the hearth with cement board before tiling and anchored furring strips to the brick to create a wiring channel and provide mounting points for the paneling above the mantel.
