This is the fireplace surround I built last fall. It goes with our basement remodel we did that spring.
Many of the moldings are big box purchases but I did make the detail molding that hides the edges of the tile.
Although it looks like this sits at a nice 45 degree angle, it is actually about 42.3 degrees, it made cutting the miters for the moldings as well as fitting the top a little more difficult than I was hoping for.
All said, except for a few mistakes that probably only I will ever notice I am very happy with the outcome.
