Faux corner fireplace surround with landscape bricks?
Any thoughts on creating a corner surround for one of those electric or gel pack, *ventless* fireplace inserts...using landscape brick? I was thinking: create frame for insert with 2x4s (I have a ton of them laying around) ...I have a nice, *natural*, hunk of wood for the top already but I was trying to come up with something SUPER easy for making the front look nice: landscape block? I see many nice looking structures built of just stacked up landscape blocks and what? are they GLUED together? Just stacked up with like a row on the bottom/front for a hearth? I am sure doing it in the middle of a wall instead of having to cut blocks for a corner would be easier but the way my windows are, the only place I can do it is in a corner as I am putting the TV on it and we have cut block in the past so we can do that part of it :) I tried to find some examples on the internet and here at Instructables and haven't seen anyone try this yet.... Any thoughts anyone?
