The size and scale of this fireplace is striking which means that changing its look has a big impact on this space. The homeowners also opted for a new wall paint color. Together, these changes give off a whole new vibe. Take a look:

From Christina: I am not a big DIY person so I spoke to the amazing contractor Adrian at Craftsman Construction that we worked with on this project, about how they were able to change the multi-colored stone fireplace into the clean white look that we finished with. It is so simple and easy!

They used the sprayer to get the even coverage on the stone. Start with two coats of an oil based primer. Once that is dry just apply the water based paint of your choice. We used Glidden Swan White (semi-gloss). Coat until fully covered.

Thank you, Christina!
