Amanda's original 70's monster of a moss rock fireplace didn't look good or even function.

From Amanda:

To fix the function, we bought a wood burning insert. For a sleek, updated look we built a frame around the rock, tiled the lower portion, added plywood to the top, trim pieces, and painted it crisp white. Now we adore the clean lines and contrasting colors.

Thank you Amanda!
