Fireplace

Has anyone here ever extended the height of their fireplace? We have a pretty traditional fireplace and I've been humming and hawing about resurfacing it (currently beige brick) with ceramic tile, but now I've decided to just add a surround using a moulding kit. BUT, now I'm thinking it might be nice to take it to the ceiling....

Has anyone ever attempted this on their own?

I emailed the website for the DG months ago (as in about 10 months ago). Never heard back from them, either.

Divine Design is one of my absolute favourites. Candice is a true talent - probably the best I've ever seen. Here's a link to the website.

I emailed Divine Design to ask them if the mantel and surround was built from scratch or a kit but I've not heard back from them yet. I'll keep you posted for sure.

I loved the design of that room, too. It was gorgeous! Candace Olsen is one of the most talented designers on tv (if not the most talented!)

And thanks for the compliment. I'm a designer in training so I always welcome hearing when I'm off my rocker! LOL haha

I love reading everyone's suggestions on this board.

Smartypants, thanks again for the heads up on that episode. I just finished watching. It's pretty much what I want to do. I am going to email their site to find out what product they used (to see if it was a kit). I loved the shape of the mantel!
