Before and After: Our Fireplace

Before and After: Our Fireplace

May 21, 2008
This Good Question came up last week and we thought we'd share our own fireplace before and after (thus far). We're still looking for a new back leg for our ancient Wedgewood baby...suggestions are welcome! Jump below for the after...


We primed the brick facade then painted it glossy white to match the living room window trim. The glossy makes it easy to wipe up spilled ashes and firewood debris. As you can see, we're still missing that back leg!

Eventually we'll add some trim or baseboard to soften up the transition from the brick platform to the wood floors. Until then, we're pretty pleased....
