The fireplace below is a self install by Joyce and Tom Dane from beginning to end. The fireplace was painted, converted and finished with Pink Rosa. This is a direct vent fireplace and for those of you who say it can't be done, well you just don't know how! We do and thousands of of customers do as well.

You can leave the doors on or take the doors off, which ever you prefer.

We actually prefer the doors and screens removed and finish with some sort of surround.

 

The fireplace below is in Beverly Hills and is also a self install direct vent fireplace. This fireplace was filled with Gold and Topped with a few pounds of Platinum.

Hi Ed,

I finally managed to finish the fireplace. We have decided to place a 2" piece of metal in front (which hasn't been done yet), though, to keep the glass off the ledge. We thought it would be deep enough, but that didn't quite work.

To enable me to keep the center area smooth, we had to place the burner on top of the wall pipe, which created a rather high burner placement. This ended up creating a bit of a problem because I had a steep slope to the hearth. This is why I need to add the metal strip in front--so the glass doesn't roll down and come out of the fireplace. We had decided to not have a glass door on it, although if we find something we really like, that could change.

 The pics might come in 2-3 e-mails, but I'll describe them here. The first few pics are duplicates of ones I already sent you.

1. Original fireplace, emptied out.

2-3. After painting with the dark blue from the chart you guys gave us. The wall was painted to match, although, I'm not sure I really like it. I'm trying to reserve judgement until I see it for awhile.

The damper handle is a brass duck head which wasn't even noticeable when it was all black.

4-5.New burner in place. This created more problems than expected due to the wall pipe being higher than most. We ended up using regular lava rock, since we couldn't find the smaller rocks. Then we added small pea gravel to fill in gaps around the lava rock. After the burner was finally level, we added the sand.

6. Testing the burner with sand added.

7. Clear glass base added.

8. Rest of colors were added--Starfire, Azurlite, Cranberry-Pink, with a little Steel Blue Topper and a few Ice Cubes.

9-10. All finished and burning.

We're still working on the right side of this wall which has cabinets holding the TV and storage. Once the entire wall is finished, I'll send you one final pic of the entire wall. Not sure how soon that will happen, so don't wait for it, if you want to post these pics on your website.

I want to thank you for all your help. Your store was great to visit, so we could pick our glass out in person. Your staff was very helpful and we had a great time making our final color choices. I'll will definitely recommend you to others.

The fireplace below is in Palm Desert California and was a self install with a crushed lava base, Clear over the lava, Starfire on top of the Clear and topped with Amber Diamonds and a splash of our Gold . It looked great until they found the burner was too close to the back which burned the back wall. I don't know if this was repaired as we did send paint and instructions on how to prevent this in the future. The fireplace looked great except for the "skid mark" on the back wall.

Above it still looked good here!

About our Diamonds, they are made of crystal and when you see them in the fireplace you actually see the fire reflection reflecting the flame backward as if the Diamonds were melting from the inside.

The fireplace below is a before and after and a "how to" make it low and lean. A more contemporary look. This is a self install by Rich Kamins and one very nice job!. He used a Bronze and Bronze Reflective base glass. Topper with a bit of Starfire. Ice Ice Ice and about 2 pounds of Copper Ruby Red Topper for a splash of color.

Typical nasty fireplace before Moderustic!

The fireplace below is a self install with a bed of crushed lava and on top we have:
1 double 24" burner
1/4" Pink Rosa base glass
5 lbs of 1/8" Solex base glass
5 lbs 3/16 Amber base glass
5 lbs Bronze Rust Copper
1 lb of Pink Diamonds
and 1 lb of Rhubarb Pink G278CF Topper
and painted with clay tan paint

For a lava fill n the base it needs to be back at least 4" so when you pour the glass on you won't see the lava through the glass. Yes they did move the lava back after they e mailed the pictures to us to see if they were doing it right.

The fireplace below is a Malm Carousel Fireplace ( www.MalmFireplaces.com ). We replaced the attempted dual burner which it was originally installed with with a simple 12" steel ring.

This fireplace has a safety pilot light kit which was still left intact for local code reasons but we did get rid of the non functioning pan burners.

The fireplace below is from Cory here locally in Rancho Cucamonga California. This transformation was a complete surface make over along with out Sterling Silver interior. The glass that was used was Bronze base glass. This is truly a DIY project and we like to help you create your ideas to reality.
Here we begin with the old interior brick panels removed.

The glass that was installed was Starfire.

The house is and was under construction so please excuse the debris around the fireplace. The pictures explain what we did. We didn't change the amount of fuel (btu's) being burned just the way it looks. Flip the switch, the ignitor lights, allowing the gas to come up through the burner and the pilot light lights the gas rising from the burner below. As for the doomsayers that tell you this can't be done, Oh Well! This will be our little secret. If you have any questions on your conversion please send us pictures and we will help you convert your direct vent fireplace as well.

Most fireplace manufactures will tell you this will void your warranty. But you need to actually read the warranty to understand what they will or won't cover. The person telling you this at the factory, ask them what the warranty actually implies. We have read many of these warranties and they won't cover the fireplace anyway. These warranties were written by attorneys to keep the liability from the manufacture and lay the blame on the consumer at any expense, no really read one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The fireplace below is a self install in Palm Springs at Tim Rockwood's. About 2" of crushed lava was used and a 2" layer of Solex base glass was installed over a double 18" burner. Watch how simple this really is. From ugly to one really nice fireplace.

Above and below is what it looked like when the project was started.

Below you can see the grate (noting great here) and the remote control. Too much stuff in the fireplace if you ask me.

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 5

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 6

Above, if you use a remote control, let's find a better way of hiding it? You think?

Below all of the STUFF is removed, much better!

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 8

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 9

Above and below it is now painted and the double 18" burner is installed.

Very clean look! Uncluttered!

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 10

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 11

Above the lava was poured up to the gas stub on the left side just enough to cover the burner. Be sure to leave 3 to 4" in the front for the glass. You don't want the lava all the way up front.

SELF INSTALL FIREPLACE 12

Now pour the glass and you have a heat producing fireplace as you were supposed to have in the beginning and it looks pretty good too!

These pictures of the fireplace were taken in the daytime if you were thinking why they were so light.
