Master Bedroom Fireplace Makeover

The fireplace in our master bedroom was looking very dated. It was time for a fireplace makeover!
Here's how our fireplace looked before. Yuck!
First we added wood planks by cutting them to fit around the alcove and fireplace area and hanging them using Liquid Nails and a nail gun.
Next I stained, painted, and distressed the wood planks, which I should have done BEFORE we attached them to the wall. Lesson learned! :)
We finished it up by hanging a mantle and decorating it up in farmhouse style. Adding a cat is optional, but really cute! :)

    I also love your wreath. Did you just paint it white? I love the whole thing!

      Whether or not she did it would work beautifully to paint a raffia or grapevine wreath. Lovely redo!
