    do you recall the color of paint placed on the bricks? Clear glaze?

    There are actually several layers of color and texture that were applied by Podrasky Studios (who you can find/contact on Houzz as well).

    Correct there was a single color wash then a number of glazes and details put on by a decorative painter

    Especially on one like this that was faux painted to change the look and feel of the brick (from a flat red) I would have a mason (or very skilled DIYer) remove and patch them prior. Admittedly this, is a bit of a high dollar solution to the problem. For a simpler or low cost solution if they are placed right I would see if they could be used to rest a decorative item on (picture, knick-knack, candle etc.) sometimes just choosing the right item can make it look and feel like an intentional choice you are proud of instead of a remnant from the pre flat screen era. Best of luck!

    Hubberton Forge made the dining room light. The photo is now tagged with the model etc.

8. A roaring fire, complete with a stack of wood nearby. A fireplace that has no kindling, tall box of matches and stack of wood nearby can look naked. Throw a few logs into an old metal bucket or a firkin on the hearth to complete the look.

Basement fireplace idea with log box to help with symmetry. Brick would not go to ceiling.

Sophie added this to Scott House IdeasJun 23, 2019

Smaller wood hole either side of fire

Jo Mama added this to NewLivingSpaceMay 30, 2019

like the answer for wood storage

Paula Siegan added this to 70 Dalton StApr 9, 2019

oh wow! If we had a woodburning fireplace, this would be AMAZING! This is the general idea of what I'm thinking - brick fireplace with brick extending all the way to ceiling. Reclaimed wood mantel....
