Quick and Easy Stone Fireplace Update

I have a double sided fireplace, and both sides were identical. I wanted to mix it up and give one side a more 'rustic' and warm look while keeping one side more transitional and clean.
With the addition of faux stone veneer (Airstone) and corbels, I got the warm rustic fireplace I always wanted. Because it was a faux stone product, the entire process took me only a few hours and was much less expensive than having real stacked stone installed.

Installing the stone was a piece of cake. It cut with a hacksaw and was applied stone by stone using a pre-mixed adhesive.

The addition of new corbels completes the look and helps the mantel feel more integrated to the fireplace itself.
