Whitewashed Fireplace

Share It:
Hi friends!  So glad to see you again!  This post will be brief because I have only a few minutes to write but I couldn't wait to show you all how I upgraded our fireplace with a whitewash!  It was an easy and quick DIY to give the fireplace a fresh look and all it took was a little latex paint and water!  I'll post more in depth details this week.  But for now, here are some pictures!  

I love love love it!

I didn't go too white because Jim was not all that enthusiastic about it. I worked on him for months showing him before and afters and finally he relented. But I went light so that if he hated it he wouldn't hate it that much. But I have a feeling he is going to love it!
 Here are some more befores:

I painted the brassy surround a while back. You can read about that here.

 Now here are the afters!

I haven't really styled the mantel but I wanted to show you all anyway! And don't forget you can follow me on Instagram now!


Linking up to these awesome parties!
