Resurfacing uneven painted brick with cement board
Hello Do it Yourselfers,
I have an 80's wood burning brick fireplace.
I have removed the hearth to the plywood floor and have taken off the mantel and gone down two courses from the top.
The brick is uneven with pieces jutting out a 1/2 to 1 inches.
I have knocked off the high points with a cold chisel and now wish to cover the brick with cement board, then cover with wood and tile. (The 2013 look).
Above the fire place will go a new smart TV by Samsung.
What is the best way to attach the cement board so it is level all around to the brick and will not come off?
