I spent the day today working on transforming a dated brick fireplace. I was doing it for an interior designer’s client in a home in Northwest, DC. The house was the prettiest house. It was originally a Sears Catalog Home and just full of light and charm.
However, the brick fireplace needed help. It had already been painted in a dark, brownish red at some point and the mortar had also been painted in an almost black color. The overall appearance was really dark and dated.
