In two days' time, design authority Stephen Saint-Onge successfully overhauls an unfulfilled space.
I love greeting autumn with a fire in the fireplace and wanted that to be the room's focal point. To cover the worn and tired existing brick surround, I found a stone veneer online at coronado.com that was a snap to apply. We applied the stone veneer to the brick fireplace with mortar, separating the stones with wooden paint sticks to keep them aligned. We followed our instincts when arranging the stones and used sand-toned grout to finish it off. By the end of day one, the fireplace was completely transformed.
