A fireplace facelift.......

So we recently received a request from a home owner to come and take a look at their tired old fireplace and give them a few options on how we can make it look more appealing. After taking a look at the fireplace and bouncing around with a few ideas with the client, a decision was made to do away with the brick look and give an altogether different finish.

After careful inspection of the bricks, paintwork and general condition of the fireplace we suggested that the best approach would be to use a lath system followed by consecutive lime base coats to give a great substrate to finish on.
