Hey everyone! I’m so excited to be here for my second month of contributing with my easy fireplace update tutorial. If you missed my last post you can see all about my guest room headboard update here. Again, my name is Ruthie and I blog over at Refashionably Late. My blog is a DIY and Home Decor blog. My husband and I moved to Minnesota a little over 2 years ago and about a year and a half ago we bought a house. Since then I’ve been knee deep in projects and loving every minute of it. What better way to share the progress of our home than to start a blog!? I love making old things look pretty again and refashioning furniture! I’m anxious to “meet” you all and share with you the progress of our home!
Today I want to share with you a quick and easy fireplace update I did in my home. When we moved into our house we had a beautiful fireplace in our basement. It was a requirement for me when house shopping to have a fireplace. I love to decorate them and I love to have a fire on a cold day, which is especially needed here in Minnesota! Our fireplace was very beautiful and I did not want to really do anything to it except….get rid of the gold. I know gold is coming back in but it just looks dated on fireplaces. Here is a before pic of my fireplace.
