Fireplace Makeover Reveal - Farmhouse Style

I am so excited to share the reveal of the completed fireplace!  

Before the makeover, our fireplace was stuck in the 70's.  We lived with the dull dark stain and paneling for 15 years. It was time to make a change!  The fireplace has good bones so there was no need for a major renovation.  I thought a little TLC with white paint and wood planks would give it farmhouse flair and make it shine.  This post contains affiliate links


This makeover came together in a series of four projects!  

First was gathering inspiration. next sanding, then picking the paint color and finally installing the plank wall.  The entire fireplace was painted with White Dove in an eggshell finish by Benjamin Moore.

Julie, that looks great! I know y'all are enjoying the change! Was it hard to paint the bricks? I've heard it's hard to cover them b/c they absorb so much paint. Anyway...beautiful job!

Painting the brick was the hard to do. Like you said the bricks absorb the paint. I used an old paint brush and loaded up the paint real good then brushed it on, gave it several coats. For in-between the bricks I used a small paint brush. Boy my hand was tired after all that painting! We are enjoying the change. Thanks for the visit!
