Introduction: Fireplace Makeover

Picture of Fireplace Makeover

Me and my wife ware not happy about that 1970 look in the middle of the family room, and after finding  jwilliamsen  Instructable about Rebuilding a Fireplace Surround, thank you by-the-way, I got inspired and decided to redo my fireplace. We both decided this is the look we want, and it gave me a place to mount a TV, and a way to get all my wires there. I also used this project as an excuse to buy more tools.
There was a little learning curve for me, first time I ever worked with Granite. Everything from cutting to polishing. Most important lesson learned, keep all fingers away from the grinder.
Between Ebay, Craigslist and Home Depot, this project was around $500.00 for material, and about $500.00 for tools. Just got done in time for the copycat challenge.
Thanks for looking.
