What are you most proud of? Not using a tile cutter. Believing in myself that I could buy big slate tiles, throw them on the sidewalk and create a beautiful fireplace for under $100.00. I also LOVE the fact that I took 4 tealight candle holders and mortared them onto the top of the fireplace. It created a conversational piece and sexy bedroom environment!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Your mind is a powerful tool. You can do it without any informational books or manuals. Just read the back of the mortar and grout bags...SIMPLE! (: Wear gloves! Broken pieces of slate are sharp. It's a messy project so put down a lot of drop cloths especially if you have white carpet like The Bunny Ranch does... HAVE FUN!!!!!!!!
