1980s large, red brick fireplace - Ideas to update?
April 3, 2013 in Design Dilemma
Hello! We just bought a colonial style home built in the 1980s. Before we start painting and changing room colors, we need to figure out how to update this fireplace. We have thought about tearing out the whole thing and starting over, but we know that would take some time and more money, so we are brainstorming on possible other options. We have thought about painting this brick which we have seen others do? And also the mantle seems dated as well. We looked on Houzz for "painting fireplace ideas" but nothing looks as though a similar style. Any ideas out there? We appreciate your input! Thank you! --irishsoap1973
