We always knew we wanted to paint the fireplace white. Logan started by ripping off the old mantle and the brick hearth first. He also painted the inside of the fireplace with high-heat black paint. Then we got to priming!
Logan found an old support beam that was from a house for sale on Facebook marketplace. He snagged that up and is working on making it our new mantle. He isn’t finished with it yet, but heres a peek! I may talk him into doing a guest post here on how he refinished the mantle :). Also the fireplace still needs a coat or two of paint.
