|so red.. so sad|
We've tried our best to accept the old brick but its not happening. The more we decorate the room the uglier the fireplace becomes. Unfortunately a major overhaul on the fireplace is not yet a priority since it will be costly.
In the meantime, we have considered painting the brick and after a bit of exploring I found some beautifully done white wash treatments:
It seemed that white washing the brick would be fairly simple and fast (I think you have learned by now that I am impatient).
Overall I ruined the fireplace. It kind of went from one UGLY to another. The bright side is that Roberta (my beloved deer above the fireplace) has never looked better!
Here is how I white washed the fireplace, if this is something you are considering for your own fireplace I hope you have much better luck than I did.
Oy.. off to fix this mess :(
Thanks for stopping in
