Updating a Condo Fireplace

Wow, replacing my bland Condo Fireplace facing was a snap! Using a new stone veneer product M-Rock, I turned a plain fireplace into the "show piece" of my Great room! A woman's work is never done, now I have to pick out the perfect Mantel!!!! Thinking a natural log, with no stain-like at Timber-mantels!
Dull, Condo floor tile fireplace-yucky!
deconstruction, found tile installed on regular drywall-yikes(with a little duct tape assist) Really!
Preparation, for M-Rock install on plywood.
If you can use a level, drill and saw-you can install this Rock veneer!
Stacked rock, on a track system, much like hanging siding. Cut the stone with a diamond blade on a grinder-dusty but with perfect cuts!
Finished in 10 hours, most of that spent walking back and forth from Fireplace to cutting station in my garage.
