Custom Faux-Fire-Place Covers
I always thought why don't they make covers for fireplaces. But not just any cover - but a cover to match the existing brick around the fireplace - to make it look as if there is no fireplace.
So, I took it upon myself to see what I could do about this dilemma: I started by measuring the fireplace opening and then cut out a piece of board to those dimensions.
Next, by mixing the appropriate colors to match the existing brick colors. You may need a little art and painting experience for this, along with knowing how to create faux finishes. If you don't, there may be videos on line to get you started.
To match just about any color you only need the basic colors like red, yellow and blue and white and a little experience in mixing colors to match just about any color and get the color you need to achieve the desired results. I also used a spray bottle with water to water down the colors as I am applying them to create glazes so that the colors can meld in to each other softly to get the faux effect of the brick. To achieve the results I wanted, I used a dry brush technique along with a spray bottle.
You ca see the results at right. It was a fun project for me. trying to capture the brick color and texture.
