Updating an old fireplace
Professional decorating ideas can help you give your red brick fireplace a face-lift you'll love.
Sometimes a fireplace simply needs a thorough cleaning and a little maintenance to give it an updated, fresh look.
It wasn’t really our style, so we decided to do a fireplace update and make it look… At least that’s what I saw in my head and tried to explain to Matt.A little boxy trim, some caulk and paint, and this part of the project was done!Phase two of this project will be spraying the gold insert with black high heat paint (once it finally decides to warm up so I can open up some windows for ventilation! We’re in between continuing the boxy trim, or adding horizontal shiplap all the way up.It extends all the way up to the second floor since this room has a vaulted ceiling, so we want to be sure before we break out the ladder! Even though were only halfway done with the project, I’m so happy with the transformation so far!After this project is done our living room will be so close to being “done” for now which will be a nice change 🙂 What do you think?

We also added metal tile edge trim around the finished hearth to make grouting and laying the floors much easier and cleaner.
