This was a fireplace that I completed a month ago for a homeowner. The three bedroom home has a modern mid century feel with soaring ceiling. A candlelight golden RL color was used for the walls. Now the fireplace was original and well, …… white. So it was paint, brush and imagination to the rescue.
When the walls were white it blended in and really never said “over here, look at me over here”! But when color was added it was a white elephant in the room!
This is the finished result with a natural stone look and a more subdued and blended finish. The chunky mantle piece was also painted and glazed to highlight a new modern look for the hearth.
What a difference it makes to update or bring the natural stone features back. This is one of several type’s of “refurbishing” that can be done to simply update and completely change a fireplace surround!
Now it is ready for the chilly fall nights ……. just around the corner!
