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.
