Oyster Shell FireplaceJuly 16th, 2009 in member junk
My fireplace was very dull. The surrounding was just a black slab that the builder had used. I saw this idea in a magazine, not sure which one. After a few oyster roasts, I had saved the shells, soaked them in my wheelbarrow with bleach and let them dry in the sun. I used tile mastic, and lots of it, to adhere the shells to the slab. Took more time than I thought, but the effect was worth it and looking at the fireplace always makes me think of good friends and good food.
