Recently I shared Jessica Jones’ plans to breathe new life into her old fireplace by using Fasade panels. The graphic and textile designer, and blogger behind “How About Orange,” just wasn’t feeling the “spinach dip” green tiles that fronted her [non-working] fireplace.
Up for a change, and always up for a DIY project, Jones chose our Fasade Traditional 6 style panels in the Brushed Nickel finish.
“I chose from the traditional category to match the look of the mantel, and selected the pattern with the smallest repeat so that more than one square would show along the sides of the fireplace cover,” she explains.
Jones details the prep, planning and installation process in this blog post, which gives some helpful hints for anyone about to undertake this project. (To clarify, as Jones does, her fireplace is a non-working unit. So it’s OK to use these plastic panels in a such a fashion. Ordinarily, though, they should not be used around heat sources.)
We think you’ll agree from the “after” photo of her beautiful new fireplace that she did an excellent job on this project.
