Let’s just start out by saying I LOVE fireplaces.  I am girl who is always cold and loves to snuggle in next to a warm fireplace.  There is just something about it.  I don’t think that I could live without one.

Our house had a fireplace when we moved in….it was oh so boring!

It was this brown island in the middle of wall.  I mean for some- this color fits- for us it brought the whole room down.

NOW our fireplace is light and bright- and it is the focal point of the room.

We love how it turned out.

You can watch all of the how to videos- there are four parts.

Part One- How to paint over tile

Part Two- How to paint over the wood surround

Part Three- Adding the wood and shiplap

Part Four- Finishing it off

Added Bonus- Decorating your mantle for fall

I hope you are inspired to giving your fireplace a facelift- just in time for thanksgiving!
