DIY Fireplace Makeover

For as long as I’ve lived in my 1927 home I have been dying to paint the cold grey limestone fireplace.

The fireplace is historic to the look of the house. I know many people would cringe over the idea of painting it.

However, after 9 years of living in my house and debating over and over I FINALLY did it!!!

I painted it!

I am beyond thrilled with how it turned out!

Before & After

It’s a true testament that paint makes ALL the difference in the world!

It was simple to do.

~ Clean fireplace with vinegar and water

~ For Concrete, Stone, or porous material seal with two thin coats of Lock Down Epoxy Bonding

~ Paint 2-3 coats of Acrylic paint

~ When dry apply 2-3 thin coats of clear Aqua Plastic Urethane Varnish. I used a flat finish.

I would love your opinion…..mantel scarf or no scarf??? Which do you like best?

Im overjoyed with the results!

Now Im asking myself…Why didn’t I do this sooner? 😉
