I always knew the fireplace had a lot of potential. Its true beauty was hiding behind a dated mask circa 1980. We had the guts of it completely rehabbed and outfitted with a gas log system. Once we pulled down the tiny ledge that was acting as a mantle and removed the brass cover, we were amazed at how big the fireplace really was.
What a difference the right paint colors and scale of a mantle can do for a fireplace. Every time I pass it I have to smile. We are so pleased with the end result.
