Mantels don't just have to be white you know! Whether you want to try a funky colour or prefer a more calm and classy look, painting your mantel is a great way to update the look of your fireplace for under $50.
You know, there are just some bricks that won't be back in style...ever. Painting brick is an easy afternoon job that gives HUGE bang-for-buck when it comes to updating and modernizing an outdated brick fireplace.
Have you ever heard of Stoneskin? You'll be happy you did! This is a SUPER thin, 100% stone tile that can be applied OVER existing tile - NO DEMO!
Also notice the outdated brass surround that was spray painted black. Replacing the fireplace or even the front of it was out of the budget for these homeowners - so we just gave it quick and affordable facelift!
Okay, so maybe this one isn't as budget-friendly as the above ideas, but DAMN does it look good!
