DIY FIREPLACE MAKEOVER REVEAL
I want to share with you our Fireplace Makeover Reveal!
This is what our fireplace looked like when we bought the house…
And this is what is looked like just a couple of weeks ago…
I was contemplating doing a stone fireplace, or maybe a concrete fireplace, or maybe even building a surround. I just wasn’t sure yet. But I needed to shot some photos of our flooring for Twenty & Oak, and I knew that I needed to do SOMETHING to the fireplace to make it look better.
So I started by priming and painting the insert…
And then I decided to temporarily paint it white. But when I did, I couldn’t paint all the way into the joints with my roller, even though I used a thick nap.
The joints were VERY deep, and I knew I would have to use a paint sprayer to paint them quickly. But I didn’t think I would like the look of the deep joints even if they were painted white.
So I decided I wanted to fill them in with grout.
That is when it got REALLY messy, but I LOVE the way it turned out!
I saved my Instagram stories of the whole process in the video below, so you can see how I got the finished look.
And I LOVE the way it turned out soooooo much, that it is not a “temporary” fix anymore. We are gonna keep it just the way it is.
Cy built the mantel with leftover flooring, and I will share that tutorial with you soon. That is also the same mirror in the “before” picture, but I did a little makeover on it as well. That tutorial is coming up too!
I found a cute fall pompom garland at Michael’s and added it to the mantle. It was 70% off. Regularly $25 on sale for $7.50!
You can get it HERE.
It’s hard to believe it is the same fireplace!
I can’t wait to hang some stockings on it! :)
Have a blessed day!
