So I have been wanting to redo our fireplace in the family room ever since we moved in last October. I was thinking on adding some nice wood moldings. I probably won't get to doing that until after Christmas so I did this instead.
I used some dark brown paint to the sides and down below.
I think this is just the pop of color that I needed to tide me over until I come up with a new design.
Here is the before. I had to use the one from the previous owners as I could not find where I had put my picture.
I definitely like the darker color better. I was going to continue it to the top but thought the bottom would be enough for now. I also painted the drywall below to tie in with the wood next to it.
I like the little bit of a curve that is next to the fireplace. Perfect spot for my boxes.
