Their Second Touchstone Fireplace Installation

Erika’s parents recently moved into a newly built home and wanted to add a fireplace in the living room. Already fans of Touchstone’s easy-to-install electric fireplaces, Erika and her dad chose the Sideline Elite as the focal point. Erika shares, “This fireplace is seriously stunning - the flames and logs are so realistic!"

The “dynamic DIY duo" previously built a slat wall featuring the Sideline electric fireplace. For this new project, the “dynamic DIY duo” used build plans from fellow Touchstone collaborator as a starting point.

"Top of the List of My Favorite DIY Projects"

From start to finish, the Touchstone team loves seeing the DIY project progress from the initial plans to the beautifully styled accent wall. Erika explains, "You can put this at the top of the list of my favorite DIY projects I’ve ever done - not only did I get to use the tool skills I’ve learned over the last few years, but I got to do it all with my dad for my parents’ home."
