Updating a stone fireplace
With new design elements gaining popularity, it’s no problem to find a fireplace that not only fits your budget but also blends seamlessly into your decor.
Of course, with so many designs to choose from, it can be difficult to know where to start, so it’s important to really evaluate your needs.
Perhaps I’ll try a whitewash over some of them to create a little more variation.
At this point, I can’t really say that I love it yet. But, I do think that by next weekend when I have more time to work on it, I really will love it. You can see I skipped around so that if my additional batches of paint/water mixture had slightly different dilution levels, it wouldn’t be blatantly obvious or isolated to one section of the fireplace.
I honestly would have done even more water, but it was already really messy and wet to apply.
Some of the natural variations in the stone still come through with this 50/50 mix. The board and batten as well as the mantel need a fresh coat of white paint.
In this way, you can be sure of making an investment that will make you happy and keep you warm and cozy for years to come.
I used a 50/50 mixture of tap water and the paint to create more of the “washed” effect so that it didn’t all look like a flat, painted surface.
This modern fireplace design is perfect for a spacious, light-filled home and beautifully echoes the large glass windows for a continuous theme throughout the living area.
The mirror finish of the base gives the illusion of a floating fire, while opening up the floor plan.
