Fireplace Freshen Before and After

Since it is getting toward the end of the year and I have no money to buy you all presents, I decided that I would give you ideas.

The Fireplace Freshen Project began with this.Fireplacebegin

Exposed painted brick with a mantle that really had no value other than dust collection as the fireplace had been converted to gas some years ago.

We removed the mantle, fireplace door, brick door surround, reframed the fireplace with steel studs, softened the vertical and horizontal lines with ’round’ corner bead, added two valances for mounting indirect lighting, and recycled the vertical blinds.


Here is the finished project in its holiday trim.
