Fireplace Project Update #2 – Ryobi


I have been doing several projects around my house. Finally, the fireplace project is starting to come to a close. I have everything done so far, but the tile. If you want to see the beginning of the project take a look at this post first. Since the last post I have continued to mud and sand several times. Then I have textured, painted, and mounted a TV. I used the Ryobi Paint Station to paint the walls and it worked great! The paint went on smoothly and I couldn’t be happier. It was so easy to use and clean up! I can’t wait to use it when I paint my house. See more about it at the end of this post. Can’t wait till I get the tiling done.

I used the Ryobi Drill to mix the mud for the walls as well as the texture.
