I am installing brick veneer around a fireplace and on the hearth, but am having trouble thinking of the best way to finish it along the floor.
There’s about 3/4 inch clearance between the floor and the bottom of the brick. I’ve tried cutting slices off the edge of other veneers and staggering them (as a standard brick pattern such that it would look like it’s going into the floor), but cutting them to 3/8 thickness without breaking has proved difficult. I’ve also thought about putting down a square dowel and/or shoe molding, as well as cutting the face of the existing front corner bricks in half so that I could place larger slices along the floor (the hearth is not mortared down yet). Painting/refinishing cut sides is not a huge deal, as matte acrylic paint seems to work well.
Any suggestions on how to give this a nice finish along the floor? Thank you!
