Using my paper cutter at work, I began cutting out the brincks.
While that dried, I cut some small molding to fit inside the center.
While the bricks were drying, it was time to make some fire wood. For the firewood, I decided to try something out that I saw on youtube. A guy made some fake logs using bark and expanding foam. If you want to see his video click here.
I also used some grays to give the whole fireplace and mantle a look of being around for a while.
Here's a video of my fireplace, complete with logs and fire, in action!
