    The first thing you will want to do is to measure the fireplace surround. Once you have done this, create a line on the wall. The line needs to be perfectly plumb so that when you attach the first panel, all other panels will be plumb as well.

  • Next, you’ll need to cut down your panels to the right size using a circular saw. Double check your measurements as making any mistakes while cutting can be costly.
  • Once you have cut your panels, fit them together by matching up the lines. Use screws to attach the panels and use sandpaper and caulk to smooth out rough edges.
