"I applied American Clay to the walls of a small studio in our backyard, and we love it. Having that experience let me know that I didn't have the skill for the fireplace project as it is bordered by new bookshelves, new tile, new cabinets and has an arch in it. Luckily I bumped into Mike. He's a super nice guy and did a great job on the fireplace. There is no way I could have come close to the quality of the work that Mike did. I could not be happier."
