The Fireplace

We worked hard over the weekend to repaint the fireplace. The original fireplace was cool, but seemed dark and dirty for my tastes. We scrubbed it and spent about 8 hours painting nearly 2 gallons of masonry/brick paint. TIP: (home depot has a 5$ rebate for each gallon of Behr purchased through the 21st).The second part of the project was to replace the old metal cover. We found decorative metal sheets that fit perfectly. The fireplace is gas so it’s really just decorative. $30 fix. We priced modern screens online between 100-300$.
