Fireplace Facelift- Painted & Stenciled Tile & Granite

7 Materials
4 Days
My fireplace needed an update and I wanted to make it over on my own using an achievable method. I love the look of a stencil, so I decided to give this space a whole new look using some chalk paint and a stencil that I love! Stenciling is tough, but the outcome is spectacular! Here is a recent project I did, check out how I made over my fireplace with some paint and stencils!
Here is the fireplace before the makeover, it was old and drab, and outdated. I loved the structure of it but it was time for a fresh new look!
I first primed the whole fireplace and the hearth with STIX primer and then I painted it with white chalk paint. So fresh! I love using chalk paint, because minimal prep is needed.
After I painted the base a white chalk paint then I stenciled the hearth using acrylic paint. Attention to detail pays off! Then later I topped it off with a water based poly.
And here it is finished! I think it came out beautifully! hope you like it too!

    I would have preferred the stencil without space between so it looks like real arabesque tile (personal taste) but you did an amazing job; it looks stunning! I love the colour transformation; it really shows off the detail of the mantel now. I'm wondering if the mantel is wood or stone?
