Before and after spring fireplace painting

Warmer weather is just round the corner and even though there’s still snow on the ground in some places, it’s time to start thinking about updating your home’s decor for spring and your fireplace is a great place to start.  It’s worked hard keeping you warm all winter and now it could use a little freshening up.

Think “neutral”  for your fireplace and consider these spring fireplace painting ideas:

1.   Paint your brick fireplace with a light, neutral color to create a soft background for your  mantel and accessories. Instantly, your room will look brighter. Brick-Anew’s color choices make it easy to change your brick’s color while keeping the “real brick” look.  Twilight taupe has shades of taupe, tan and cream.  Misty harbor consists of light gray with creamy white undertones, and frosted sunshine has shades of light tan and yellowish cream.

2.   Use a cream colored paint to update a tired, outdated, wood mantel for your fireplace.  This will create a more subtle look that will blend in with your new brick color.

3.  Don’t forget about the firebox!  There’s a high temperature paint that can make it look like new, no matter how sooty and stained it looks.

After you’re finished painting, it’s time to accessorize your mantel.  Don’t be tempted to put everything you had right back up.  Find a large mirror or painting to place in the middle. Then use bright vases on each side in varying heights to add a pop of color.  Orange, turquoise, and lilac and hot spring colors.  A vase of live greenery will add a touch of nature to your room.

Home decor for spring doesn’t have to be super expensive.  Some paint and a few accessories can be  just the thing to add new life to a home that’s been closed up all winter.  The best part is, these projects can easily be done in just one weekend.  So paint away your winter blues and think spring. It will  be here before you know it!
