Obviously I can pull 10" nails out, bust out brick, rebuild braces, but don't know the correct way to insert tile spacers!!!!!! I wanted the smallest grout lines possible & have been very irritated with myself once I realized my mistake with the spacers. Live and learn I guess, but I really wish my grout lines were smaller!
I originally wanted my mantle lowered, but decided it would be too big of a process to rip out the wall to remove it.
& currently 2013.
