My husband and I are restoring an 1908 craftsman farmhouse. We are trying to figure out what to do with the fireplace. The brick has been painted over, as well as, patched in one place so there is no way that we would be able to sandblast it or strip it. We are trying to figure out what tile or stone would be true to the house. Please help us figure out what our fireplace should look like!
No one can tell you what your fireplace should look like. Look at magazines, books and websites. There are lots of good bungalow books at the library. Also, look at the fireplaces in your neighbors' houses.
