Fireplace Makeover

January 18, 2008

The other day I suddenly decided that I’d like to paint the fireplace…and hubs agreed!:)

Here’s BEFORE:
The fireplace always bugged me because the brick looks sooty and dirty.

And AFTER:

I like the fresh, clean look that the white paint gives it.


I’m looking forward to changing the mantle decorations from fall/winter to spring/summer, but I need some ideas. I’m ready for easy, breezy summertime!!
