Mosiac Fireplace DIY
The idea I had in this Man Cave/Teenage hang out was a New York loft style. I didn't want it 2 Man Cave-ish with a bunch of dead animals on the wall & peanut shells on the floor. Nor did I want it 2 Teenage-ish with life size cut outs of Justin Beeper (what I call him) & a lemonade stand.
When it was time to do a fireplace, I wanted real stone, something shiny & elegant in a way. We found this great marble we wanted, the only problem was, it was in the main entrance to Caesars Palace in Vegas.. As you may have guessed, we found us the Marble at non other than our local Lowes. Okay, it may have not been the 20x20 marble squares they had surrounded by gold instead of colored mud, but hey we feel like we SCORED!
2 rock the boat like I tend to do when it comes to DIY projects I wanted to do it in a mosaic pattern, which really isn't a pattern at all if you think about it.
So I gave the twins the hammer & bang-bang they went.
Then came the colored mud & broken pieces to adhere to the wall..
Oh ya, I better show you all the WALL.
Can you see the face on the right by the fireboX? We just noticed that that the other night while having "Movie Night"..
