Simple Fireplace Update



We needed a simple way to update our fireplace.

Buying a house built in the late 1970′s/ early 80′s sometimes means you get some sweet dated finishes. Our fireplace was no exception. Wood paneling and faux “old” brick was bringing the house

down. Here is a before shot to help you know where I’m coming from:


Work with what you’ve got.

I looked online for some inspiration and ultimately decided to leave most of the brick, get rid of the wood paneling and paint it all white. I liked big mantels and natural stone, but my budget would not allow for it. I would have white-washed the brick, but the bricks push out way past the grout, so this wouldn’t have looked good (if you want to white wash your bricks you will want your grout lines close to level with your bricks). Here is how it turned out:


I set some painted frames along the top and had them surround various objects . My candle holders could use some candles – I realized this after the photos were taken, of course. If you want to copy this look, collect some frames and spray paint them. The finishes on my frames were all matte- except for the gold- this is a good way to hide flaws and it worked well with the colors in this room.


Do a little decorating.

Inside the fireplace are mossy balls. That is a funny sounding sentence. I like how these add color and tie in the green from the rest of the room. Books would have looked good stacked inside there as well, so would wood, or candles… ah! I think this will have to be a blog post all of its own- what to put in your fireplace besides a fire. Anyway, this is a good display area that can be changed seasonally to give the room a subtle new look and feel.


Helpful Hints:

If you are looking for easy ways to update your fireplace, keep in mind your color palette to tie everything together, hiding “ugly” features with paint, and using repeating objects to create a cohesive look.
