Winter White Fireplace Renovation

3 Jan

Now that we just cleaned our chimney, I have fireplaces on my mind.

My dream is to convert our fireplace from this:

(It’s not bad but a little dated.  And the red bricks don’t really match the color scheme of the room)

into a minimalist modern masterpiece with glass rocks like this:

But that requires expensive masonry work and converting our fireplace from old school firewood and match to an expensive gas conversion.   Gas conversion requires a plumber and mucho dinero.  Can’t do that anytime in the near future so for now, I’m considering doing something like Brittish blogger, Dottie Angel did here:

We have the brick and it would look so much better painted crisp and white.

It’s not possible to stuff the fireplace with logs right now. I want to actually use the fireplace during the winter.  But it will look nice to do something like this after winter is long gone.

    I think painting the brick will be just the trick for snazzing it up! I even like it better than the glass rock fireplace! Boo for you not living here — I want to help with all your fun projects! <3

      I think painting the brick white too would be perfect!!! I do love the glass rock…but nothing beats a can of white paint! :)
