Rustic Stone Fireplace: After

Who: Mary M.
Where: Belmont, MI

It was such a dramatic change, our neighbors were blown away. The stove is so efficient we had to move the thermostat upstairs in order for it to come on and heat the rest of the house. We found a 100-year-old barn door in the bargain corner for $40, and we put it on the walls around the fireplace opening. It is super rustic, and part of the door was chewed by cows or horses, which makes a good story, and it makes the door look rustic and authentically old.

Who did the work: We did all the work ourselves.
Cost: $1,000-$5,000
