Affix the new surround with a construction adhesive for stone, such as one by Liquid Nails. Squeeze two beads onto the back of the first leg, and press the stone into place. Repeat the process with the second leg. For the wider top piece, apply an extra bead of caulk down the center. Replace the mantel molding.
