It’s amazing what a little spray paint can do to change a room. When we first moved into our house, I thought we’d have to completely re-face the fireplace in order to get rid of the gold. But then I discovered fire safe spray paint. Check out the before and after. I think the spray paint cost about $10 and its made a huge difference.
Eventually I’d like to paint the mantle white and build white built in shelving around the fireplace and mount the tv above it. But for now I’m just happy to be rid of that gold.
