Derona had been putting off painting her fireplace wall for ages and we're so glad she got around to it. The simple change made a dramatic difference you have to see to believe.

From Derona:

When the post Style Inspiration: Dressing Up Your Mantel, was published on this very site featuring a fireplace wall that was painted black, I took it as a sign and, after being encouraged by a fellow commenter on the piece, I headed to the DIY store.

Thank you Derona Moss!
