How to get the look of a stone fireplace in one weekend!

Mag ambushes a friend and does a complete makeover on her fireplace!  (This video features a sweeping cinematic score that Mag created with her GarageBand software!)



That is really really impressive that you could all that in one weekend. How many hours total did it take for you to do all that?

Hi, we discovered your site via a newsletter from a home warranty company. We love what you do and as new homeowners you can bet we'll be back for more tips and advice!

Just want to make sure you're aware your videos are being used in promotional info by commercial companies. I hope this was done with your knowledge and permission. Here is the link to the newsletter:


Keep up the great work... this is incredible! ; )


Hi Manju,
Thanks for the heads up. I didn't know about that but it's fine since it may help people take on a refacing project without feeling so intimidated. There have been companies who re-edit our pieces and substitute brand names and use them as promotional pieces, but YouTube has been very happy to shut them down when we requested it, so all is well. Good luck with your new place!
