Brick Fireplace Makeover in White

I just repainted our brick fireplace using Fusion Mineral Paint. I still need to do a few more coats of black paint on the 90's gold but I'm loving it so far!

First I dry brushed on a coat of Lamp White but it looked too cool in tone so I dry brushed on my go-to off white, Champlain on about half of the bricks to warm it up. It needed a bit of glam so I brushed on some Pearl Metallic Paint over the whole thing and it glistens!

I was so afraid that I'd hate a painted fireplace but I absolutely love it! You can see the living room picture from before we moved in below. This house was a foreclosure and we updated the floors, walls, doors and paint to bring it out of the early 90s.

The painted fireplace along with my newly painted antique trunk turned coffee table gives me a peaceful little area to sit and watch TV or pin on Pinterest.  I don't love the design of our living room but I think I've done all I can to make it open and bright.

This looks great! Wish I thought to use fusion on my fireplace. Are you using it on the metal part? I’m curious if fusion will stand up to the heat?

All of the furniture pieces with the exception of the industrial shelving unit are used pieces that I've re-homed and painted with Fusion Mineral Paint.

I had the chance to transform a cute little dresser this weekend.  I needed a break from white after completing this dresser in Raw Silk so I chose my go-to color, Inglenook.
