Updating old fireplaces

Perhaps it has brassy gold components or you’ve grown bored with the ceramic logs.

Replacing a fireplace can be expensive, but an update can be very affordable.

Our fireplace surround recently got a quick makeover with the help of black high heat enamel by Rust-oleum.

It was originally a brass color that I decided to paint brown a couple years ago.

The whole fireplace and hearth took me less than 30 minutes. Since we were spraying in the house, we needed to seal off everything. I, on the other hand, required about 3 showers before all the black paint was off my face and hands! If you have a fireplace that you were wishing you could change, I totally recommend doing it yourself! And if you missed it, Jess transformed her fireplace with some paint and a stencil this past summer.

Fire glass filaments provide the most dramatic change, and they are available in many styles.

Even though gold jewelry is back in style, a dated, brassy fireplace can put a major damper on the style of a room!

Updating your fireplace can seem overwhelming, but let me tell you it’s not as hard as it seems and if you’re really determined (like me) you can get it done less than 24 hours! One of my best gal pals was moving into a new house, so I trucked on down to Maryland to help move and to try to tackle a few fun projects.

Updating a red brick fireplace provides a visual lift to an entire room.
