Makeover: How We Replastered Our Mountain House Stone Fireplace

I have been looking for a fireplace and a wood mantel since we first moved into our house in 2012. Nothing compares to winter here in Pennsylvania and warming up next to a cozy fire.

When we lived in a Victorian-style house in Pittsburgh, we installed a gas fireplace, which was a little expensive, but it met our needs for what we could afford at the time. When I was interested in having that fireplace I always dreamed of a “real” antique.

Earlier this year my husband and I decided it was time to install a stone fireplace in our home! I was happy!

We chose propane gas because we live in an area without natural gas. Note: Our neighbors are cornfields and open fields.

I thought fixing up our fireplace would be as simple as walking into a stone showroom/dealer, choosing my stone and planning to install it, but this seemingly simple task quickly became frustrating and time-consuming. All of that could have been avoided if I had gone into the program with a little guidance on the choices I needed to make and how to make them.

My goal with this article is to simplify the process for you to jump into a similar program. I’ve included five stone fireplace ideas to consider when designing a stone fireplace:

Can You Install Stone Veneer Over Brick?

One of the main decisions you will need to make is whether you want to use synthetic or natural stone. The advantage of manufactured stone (also known as “custom”) is that it is less expensive than natural stone and because it is lighter than natural stone, it is easier to install and less expensive. The pro of natural stone is its beauty – each stone has variation and the end product is beautiful.

If you have a big budget, natural stone is a great option and may be the way to go but I opted for manufactured stone veneer to stay within my budget. Considering the amount of money I saved and how close the stone veneer made me look to the “real thing”, I am very happy with my decision.

There are many different stone styles to choose from, including field stone, stacked stone, like the beautiful fireplace below:

Nadi Kal et al. You can also use a combination of two different types of stone, such as fieldstone and ledgestone. Each stone style is available in a variety of color options, creating a dizzying array of options. I finally chose Ledgestone (Ledgestone by Stone Craft Industries) in warm gray and brown (the “Pennsylvania” color):

The best way to choose a stone style and color is to visit several showrooms that have fireplaces on display with various stone options. Once you’ve narrowed down your options by considering the color and style of your home, borrow sample boards to see how the stone will look in your home. If the showroom doesn’t have a sample board they can borrow, ask if they can borrow stones (get a good look at size and color) from other options.

If you choose stacked stones, you need to decide if you want to “dry” the stacked stones or if you want the stones and mud to show between the stones. This photo shows both – the mud layered stone above and the dry layered stone below:

The best way to decide whether to add keystone or other stone trim to your fireplace design is to find inspiration online and in fireplace showrooms. While I choose a basic design without keystones or cutting other stones, you may choose to create a row of keystones and accent stones above the fireplace door.

A tall stone, one above the fireplace, or any other stone cut design/shape you can dream up. My advice – keep it simple with no keystones/cuts or simplistic design.

Your Fireplace Wall’s Finish: Consider This Important Detail With Tile Or Stone Cladding — Designed

If you want to have a dress that is well combined with stone veneer, then this decision should be taken along with the stones you choose. A variety of materials such as stone, painted wood, or natural or stained wood are used to create a mantle. My fireplace obviously does not have a mantle and I go back and forth about whether or not that is the best decision. I already have several closets and don’t need a dresser to display anything, I like the casual look, but a mantel would be nice to decorate for the holidays!

Most veneer manufacturers carry hearthstones designed to coordinate with your chosen stone veneer. However, beware – hearthstones
