Advice on updating my free standing fireplace
I'm not a huge fan of the raised fireplace with brick. I was thinking of white washing the brick, but that's as far as I've got. I'm again, not a huge fan of blonde wood either, but as it's a country home, the theme of blonde wood has already been established. The wood is high end with beautiful knots, so I will not be changing that (in the near future anyway).
We plan to remove the carpet (to tile that looks like wood). I love rustic with modern elements thrown in. Eclectic is how I describe my style.
I've also added an example of the wood floor (which again, is actual ceramic).
I currently have stinky dirty carpeting in my living room and I want to replace it with a durable flooring that can stand up to dogs and kids.
Does having a paint over a popcorn ceiling change how I'd remove the popcorn ceiling?
I want to spruce up my walls with peel-and-stick wallpaper. Has anyone used this before and can advise me as to how to apply it properly?
I've heard staining is a good technique for updating floors. So how do I stain my wood floor?
I had started a white wash a year ago but sanded off most of it when my family hated it.
