When Frumps go for home improvements and redesigning, money is a large factor. When living on a budget, creativity becomes the currency substitute. This chimney was created using recycled drywall sheet rock, which came from the cut out for the new door entrance you see to the right of the chimney. Cutting the "bricks" into 3 x 8 inches using a razor knife for clean cuts; then using texture mud for the adhesive, allows for the appearance of aged imperfection. After allowing enough "curing" time, this chimney will then be textured with dry wall mud for the rough brick appearance, then painted using multiple colors and tones for a desired finish. Can you BUY these faux bricks already finished? Yes. Do these frumps have the money for home decor, redesigning, home improvement? NO. Do they now have a faux chimney in their living room which adds ambience? YES. How much did it cost $$? Well, they have the bucket of mud for other projects of home improvement, the bricks are recycled dry wall from another home improvement project and they get "oops" paint whenever and wherever they can, in their workshop, so basically, this was a " FRUMP FREEBIE" !!!
