Obsessing Over White Brick Fireplaces…

More and more people are saying goodbye to their drab, dingy, brick fireplaces and painting them white. I love a painted white fireplace…it freshens and brightens and leaves you with a beautiful blank canvas to style anyway you please! Here are just a few of my favorite looks….

Loving this all-white room and the arched detailing on the fireplace…

Are you noticing the trend here? White fireplace + white walls = perfection!

It’s nice to know that a $20 can of paint and a little DIY can really purify a space. Are you contemplating painting your fireplace? I say go for it!!

    We painted our ugly red brick fireplace white, in our last house. It turned out great! The room looked so much lighter (and larger).

    • Mom,
      I remember thinking you guys were crazy for painting it…but when it was done I loved it!

  • I agree, I love a painted fireplace as opposed to a brick one… Our fireplace is painted white as well as our walls and we love it!!

  • those fireplaces are gorgeous! I have a double sided brick fireplace (seen in the den and living room)….and you KNOW I ain’t scared to paint things….but something about covering the brick makes me nervous. I love the rawness and organic edge it brings. And once it’s painted, there’s no going back.

    I think you should come over and tell me what to do! :)

    I JUST painted my dingy brick fireplace white this weekend and I love it. Question…I left the hearth, which is the same brick. Should I paint that too??

    • Hey Kristen! Can you send me a pic? I would say paint it, but I’d love to see it first…

    I painted my fireplace last year and it made a drastic difference in our house. The white paint really made the entire house so much lighter and brighter! I would recommend it to anyone.
