Fireplace Refresh

One of the reasons we fell in love with our new house when we were first looking was the beautiful wood work it had in the family room.  The crown molding and the fireplace mantel were two big things that stuck out in our head – in a good way!  However, the whole house was oak everything.   It was not bad, it just wasn’t our style but we knew it would be an easy fix.   So, here’s what our family room looked like when we bought our house…

Not bad, right?  Just not great.    We decided to paint the mantel and trim white – and WHAT a difference!  The trim and mantel are painted with Sherwin-Williams ProClassic Interior White Paint  and so far so good!  Good coverage and it seems to be holding up well (granted we’ve only been in our house for a month) 😉

We picked Sherwin Williams Light French Gray for the walls, the same color we used in our Living Room.   I LOVE the color with the white mantel and trim.

And here’s how our room looks now!

I really think this easy update made such a difference in this room.  The fireplace is such a beautiful focal point, and painting it white really made it pop!

We kept the existing fireplace screen, and the same tile – so this makeover was easy on our bank account!  (Always a win!)

Now we LOVE snuggling up to our newly refreshed fireplace with some hot chocolate and a family movie!

    The power of paint! It looks great and I love that you were able to save some of the elements and keep it under budget. So much goes into a house and those dollars are precious.

      I was so happy we were able to keep the beautiful woodwork – just “refresh” it! Keeping the cost low was definitely a plus! Thanks for stopping by! I appreciate your sweet comment! xoxo
