brick fireplace makeover. Undoubtedly, a fireplace can quickly become one of the most beloved aspects of your home. It’s a place to gather the family for a game of checkers, or to seal your bond in your first weekend as a married couple. It’s a symbol of love and warmth, a treasured part of your living room, rec room, or bedroom.

But, at times, your fireplace may need a facelift. For instance, you might benefit from a brick fireplace makeover. A wood fireplace makeover can be particularly exciting, since it gives you the opportunity to blend both the old and the new. While a wood mantel makeover may not be easy, it is entirely doable—if you follow the right steps.

Decision Time
To begin with, it’s important that you decide whether you will complete the work on your wood brick mantel makeover yourself, or whether your wood fireplace mantel makeover will be performed by a contractor. Obviously, there are advantages and disadvantages to each approach.

A Lofty Do-It-Yourself Project
A mantel makeover can be an ambitious do-it-yourself project. It requires doing a sufficient amount of planning and research. You must also make sure that you choose the design that will work best for your room. In addition, it’s important that you select the right materials for the project. You may also need the help of a friend in order to complete your masterpiece.

When You Need a Seasoned Professional
If the project is particularly complicated, you may need the help of an expert. A professional carpenter may also give you ideas for designs that you might never have thought of on your own. In addition, you benefit from that carpenter's years of experience in the woodworking trade. Still, hiring a professional means that you'll have to spend extra money for your makeover. However, if it is done right, it is well worth the extra expense.

Ripe for a Change
