This is what our living room looked like last week. Even with our new floors and furniture, our 22-year old red brick fireplace with its brass door seemed outdated.
For that reason, last weekend I spruced up our fireplace with some paint.
Originally, I was planning to paint our fireplace white. However, once I applied the primer, I realized that the white color was too stark for our small living room.
For that reason, I painted our fireplace beige (Valspar Cincinnatian Hotel Briggs Beige #3008-10A) to blend in with our walls and furnishings. I love the results!
