Fireplace, Mantle & Shelves
This was my first house. I removed the wood paneling, replaced with sheet rock. Built the shelves that are now sagging a bit from the weight.
Used hardibacker over the brick fireplace to install the stone. Turned out better than I thought it would.
The best thing about the job was the uncovered time capsule from 1978. A father and son worked on the previous job together. This was before I had a son of my own and when I started to think about how cool it would be to have a little helper someday.
