sawed elements of which will be the future fireplace, you can use an electric jigsaw, but note that all items must be clearly marked with a pencil and a ruler (in the eyes not relynecessary).By the way, if you find it difficult to saw boards on their own, then you can order items after giving the dimensions of a furniture factory.If you bring your board, then it will come cheaper, about 200 rubles per 1 item.

collection framework fireplace

After all the constituent elements are ready, there comes the most intriguing part of the job.The intrigue lies in the fact that, at the stage of collecting if mistakes were made in the previous step - the design does not meet in a single component, and some items will have to cut again.

Putting back wall

rear wall in my case consists of 2 elements, it turned out that the item is 95 cm. In width and 115 cm in height we were not able to saw a single component.But this is not a problem becauseYou can fasten 2 boards with the help of the bar, and the joints between the boards, decorative plaster putty, which has remained in our home after the repair.

Or 40 to 50 cm. This betrays a more aesthetic appearance of your fireplace.

Decor fireplace

As I have already noted above, as elements of decor, I decided to choose the moldings of plaster.It is sold in DIY stores and has long earned the respect of the people of creative professions.Just wanted to mention that if your main goal - is to make an economical decorative fireplace, then as a good alternative to stucco - Styrofoam decorations.

I did not use them, becauseI thought that stucco looks more expressive when painting.In addition, if the foam paint ordinary paint, it is likely that he will dissolve under the influence of chemicals.
