Painting our Fireplace

I am so excited to share a makeover today!  
I am thrilled that it remains in my home and we marked it off the To-Do list!

As you may know, we live in a farmhouse that was built in 1901.  There was an addition in early 2000 that did not marry the old part of the house.  We are slowly (too slow for me) updating the newer section.  If I had time, money and more time I would paint the woodwork white.  Since that would probably end our marriage, I am attempting to paint everything else white!

Here is our latest completed project!

This Fireplace is in the new section of the home and was a bit dark and a bit pink.

In the winter, I painted the mantel and surround in Maison Blanche Oyster.  I held off on the brick because I knew there was no going back once I hit it with paint.

The wait ended this weekend.

So light and bright!

Maison Blanche Paint in Oyster
One coat

I am sticking with one coat of paint.  I love the texture of the brick and the variation in coverage. 
As far as a top coat goes, I am waiting to see how it wears.  I believe we will like it even more as it wears naturally.  But we will wait until winter to determine our approach.

Hubby is usually a huge help on home projects.  However, he chose to sit on the couch and be my cheerleader as I painted away.  

Hope you love it as much as we do.  Maison Blanche no-prep paint ROCKS!  If you have been waiting, debating or contemplating painting your fireplace or brick, I encourage you to go for it!  
Very easy.
