Updating Your Brick Fireplace With Paint

Does Your Fireplace Need a Boost?

Now that cold weather has arrived, think about interior updates to make you love your home more!

Have a look at how paint can transform your fireplace 

into a focal point you're thrilled with.

Here's a first-hand makeover:
My brother and his wife bought a cabin in northern Minnesota.
One of the projects Sandi tackled was the lower-level fireplace.
She followed the instructions from Lowe's and it turned out beautifully.
Now the fireplace is a pretty focal point that works with the look she wanted to achieve.

Originally the fireplace had variegated brown bricks, making it look dated.
 Nearly finished . . . 
Finished and looking great!

Lowe's indicates that the skill level is Beginner, the estimated time is a weekend, 
and best of all - it's inexpensive.

Lowe's also has a link for Customer Stories that have been uploaded -
you'll find customer suggestions, paint, questions answered, etc.
Another great resource to check if you're thinking of doing this.

Here are more before and afters.What do you think?

there were some hiccups along the way.
