Brick Veneer Farmhouse Fireplace
Ready to find out how to upgrade your fireplace to have that farmhouse feel without breaking the bank? Today I am sharing a recent DIY farmhouse fireplace project with you!
When we moved into our house three years ago we had a huge punch list of items to tackle including a master bath renovation, kitchen renovation, refinishing and extending the hardwood floors and so much more. It was a long 8 weeks of renovation and it took a lot out of us, so when we nearly finished all of those things we took a break from home projects (for like, two years). My husband is the handyman and he needed a break.
It's been three years since we moved in, and now we're all settled and some of the bigger projects are finished so it's time for the fun small projects to help make this home perfectly ours! First on my list, replace the awful dull tile that surrounded the fireplace. It was cold, and unwelcoming. My home vibe is both parts farmhouse and boho tied together with a thread of warmth and hospitality. The sterile tile was NOT feelin' that vibe. So it had to GO!
Before: The fireplace was surrounded by a dull boring beige tile.
During: Mudding the fireplace, placing the brick veneer tile
During: All brick veneer tile laid, let set to dry for a day
During: Use grout to smear the brick and achieve the German Schmear look
After: A Farmhouse faux brick German Schmear look
