Looks Great. I thought it looked good when we were at your place a couple weeks ago. I didn't think you could go any further. Your House is coming together nicely

I need to do that to my fireplace, it has some ugly 80's polished marble on it. After you pried the marble off, I'm assuming there was mortar left behind? You say it came off easily with hammer and chisel, was there another step here too? It seems like some residue would be left behind, or did the layers of paint sort of seal that off?

travelteam,

Very inspiring. My fireplace is about twice that size, but I'm thinking I might just try it anyway.

What Citristrip product did you use? I just looked it up and saw that they have a gel, a spray, a paint remover "wash", etc.

Thanks.
