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!
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!

    Best way to start is with a few gallons of paint. That wall color was.....UUUGH! Love the colors you chose. An easy upgrade and a great look!

      Thank you, William! I agree - I was not a fan of the old paint color either! ;)

    I love that color! Really brightens it up. I'd move that sofa out into the room so as not to block the light and also because you have a HUGE living room....lucky.
