I declared 2014 as the year of the outdoor projects. We had a pergola and some stone work done back in January, but the fireplace was my baby to complete. I decided to use AirStone, available at most Lowes stores. Here's a quick before and after shot so you can see how it turned out. My husband helped unload the boxes out of the car and made the cuts for the mantle that I built, but everything else I did all by myself!
