The fireplace picture below shows what almost happened. The customer asked: Should I Paint? I think it looks good with the used marks, what do you think? I told him if he doesn't buy the paint that I would donate the paint.
He did paint and it looks great!
Now to show you a happy ending! Morris in Canada finished his fireplace any it turned out amazing!
The fireplace pictures below show a happy ending!
YUK, YUK, and YUK! Burning wood is like having an incinerator in your family room.
There is nothing pretty about a wood burning fireplace.
Now, paint the interior, connect the burner.
Pour in the filler.
Test your burner.
Pour in the glass and your done! Morris used a Starfire base glass ad topped it with 3/4" Starfire base glass and Rhubarb Topper.
Very nice Morris! One of our Canadian Customers.
The fireplace below has a Starfire base glass and is topped with a bit of Pink Rosa base glass.
The fireplace below is a two sided fireplace from the bedroom to the bathroom. This is a very simple conversion. A Starfire base glass was used and topped with Gold bas glass.
Very simple, very clean and very nice.
This next fireplace was done with lack of knowledge! First they installed a 18" single burner and some real interesting choices of glass. What they did do correct is have a 3" sand bed under their yuk glass. The first issue we repaired was the stub out on the left side of the fireplace floor. All we did was install a 90 degree elbow and connect a 1/2" flex line to the new double 24" burner. They had left the flex pointing in the air and then reduced it to a 3/8" line and to top that off added they very sad single 18" burner. We repainted their futile attempt (of painting) with dark metallic brown, added 10 lbs of sand and poured 75 lbs of Starfire base glass over the new burner and sand filler. We will explain as we move forward:
Below you can see the black marks under the paint.
Below you can see the flex line that was installed was left above the surface. Now if we tried that I think our customers would take us out and string us up, what do you think? To top it off this customer was an attorney! Completely happy with what we did.
Here is the new paint on the back walls.
Now we added the Starfire base glass. One thing we have been doing a little bit different is to bring the glass out from the front of the fireplace. We let the glass come out of the fireplace from 3 to 6 inches to make it look even more grand. What do you think?
Here is a the almost finished product of what we do! We left several colors with the customer to add. We will post pictures when they arrive.
Below are teh finished pictures of what else was added:
Ice Ice Ice,
Red R Topper,
Roma Red Topper
I think it turned out very colorful! Check it out!
The fireplace pictures below show the before and after from Bob Kobus. The glass that was used is:
Starfire base glass and Ice Ice Ice, Very nice, contemporary and simple!
Let's go from start to finish:
Nice Logs! NOT!
Bob used an aluminum brick metalized panel.
Then they did their grind pattern.
And here you have it finished!
Yes the logs will be leaving very soon!
Starfire and Ice.
Much better, don't you think?
