Our fireplaces are often the center of attention, with decorated mantels and hearths. Occasionally homeowners want to hang a wreath, mirror or other decorative objects high above the mantel but there is usually one issue – the brick. Drilling a hole into brick is often an intimidating process but it’s actually quite easy. If you have an electric drill, you’ll want to purchase a masonry drill bit. While at the hardware store, have your masonry screw and anchor in hand so you can purchase the correct size drill bit for your project.
