Fireplace Makeover "After"

Here it is! Instant "cozy". It's definitely what the room needed!

I painted the ceramic surround and gas insert with a high temperature enamel. I used a traditional board and batten style wainscot design as the wall treatment. Finally, I gave the existing mantel a fresh coat of cream paint to match the millwork. The project was easy, budget friendly and I did it all myself while my husband was away for two days.

In case you missed them, the before pictures were posted a couple days ago. Scroll down to view them. Thanks for visiting! Check out other projects built by us girls at Sawdust and Paper Scraps!


  1. That really looks great. Isn't is great when you do something all by yourself and it turns out great. Pat yourself on the back. From a fellow buildhers club girl.

  2. I never would have thought to paint the tile surround, I would have gone at it with a hammer and chisel and what a mess that would have made. It's so much better when the hubby comes home to a finished project than to a mess that looks like a tornado hit.

    I love the new look and the fact that you did it in 2 days for $22. What!

    Thanks for linking up.

  3. It really lightens up the room. Great job!

  4. Gorgeous redo! Can you please tell me where you got the photo frame hanging above the mantel? I am looking (everywhere) for one just like this!!! i think it would be perfect to hold all my wedding snapshots.
