Painted Fireplace Before and After

Several months ago, a friend and client of mine moved into a new house.  The fireplace needed a little facelift.

Before moving in, the walls were painted a light gray and the brick around the fireplace was painted white.

Here is the fireplace today!


Quite a jaw dropping difference!

Once again, the magic of paint amazes me!

Over the next week, I’ll be revealing a few other projects from this room as well.  So make sure you come back to check it out!

  1. What a difference! You’d never guess what it used to look like!

  2. I popped over from the hutch to see this -such a difference! Love it 🙂

  3. The all white looks so fabulous!! Great job on painting it and decorating it. Lovely. Thanks for linking up at Romance on a dime!!

  4. I am thinking of painting my brick fireplace white. Did you have to use a special type of paint to adhere to the brick? Any special cleaning tips before hand? I am so nervous of paint and the gas…not that we use it.

    Thank you!

    • I haven’t ever used special paint on the brick. But i bet if you asked at the paint store, they could give you some insight into it.

      You will LOVE your brick painted white! It makes such a big difference!
