Beautiful Fireplace Detail with Precast Concrete

Do you want a fabulous fireplace surround but have a not so fabulous budget?
If so, you might want to consider Precast Concrete material
Concrete can simulate natural stone at a much more affordable price and if you see gray when you think of concrete....think again. The fireplace surround in this photo is colored precast concrete. Absolutely gorgeous!
I do love this fireplace and I do love the incredible embellishments on top of the mantle.

Fireplace Artwork

If you are in the market for a colorful and wonderful piece of artwork to go above your fireplace mantel, please visit Jennifer Lanne's website

I promise it will make you smile!

Embellished Limestone Beauty

As shown in Phoenix Home & Garden magazine, this limestone fireplace certainly qualifies as a beauty. Not only is the limestone beautiful but the embellishments are as well. So much old world charm. I love it!!

If you haven't checked out Phoenix Home & Garden magazine before, do it now. One of my favorites!!
