Our ugly 80’s used brick fireplace has been transformed. Hallalujia!! As of Friday, the most amazing hearth is floating above our bare concrete floors. Of course I’m biased but after months and months of this, you gotta look on the bright side, right?
We saw a sample in the DeLorenzo Marble and Tile showroom and were disappointed to find that they no longer carried that particular stone but they were able to find a piece of the Brazilian “Infinity Quartzite” at a nearby yard. DeLorenzo Marble removed the shiny surface with wire brushes in a process called “leathering” so that the softer parts of the stone is removed down to a particular tolerance and the harder materials project leaving a wonderful textured surface.
I love it and can’t wait until the tile is installed. Our Construction Project is actually starting to look like a house. I’m getting excited!
Progress. Progress. Progress.
We were very lucky to find the piece and when it was finished it matched exactly what we thought it would look like. I wasn’t sure about the tile that will go on the back of the fireplace when it was chosen but now that I see it all together it looks great. Good job Dream Team.
Glad that you trusted my vision!
