Boring Wall Made Beautiful!
I so wanted a stone wall in my home but the cost never fit in my budget. After years of wishing I was determined to find a way. I watched a lot of videos on air stone and convinced myself that I can do it. After all the video had a woman laying the stone. When other people laughed when I said I was going to try it that gave me the determination to show them.
I always wanted to have this wall stoned. The cost of someone doing it for me kept me from having it done. That is until I watched how to videos and got the courage to tackle it myself.
I bought Air Stone and the cement for around $500.00. Borrowed some scaffolding from a friend and took a deep breath and began.
It actually was easy. This statement comes from a woman that has nevered laid a stone in her life. Matter of fact,from a woman that has never tackled any diy project in her home.
I was very pleased with the finished project.
Guests still are shocked when I tell them that I am the one who did the stone work. The hardest part was cutting the stone. That is only because I believed the manufacturer instructions when it claimed it could be cut with a hack saw. Don't fall for it and find a diferent method for cutting. I even went on and made the cornices too!
