This is the view of it across the room. I took this before we moved in...or should I say moved our boxes in. We haven't really settled in the house yet, even though it's been 5 months. We have a couch and chair, and a bed in the master and a bed in one of the guest rooms. And, uh, boxes of stuff all over the place. When we're there, I call it "camping in".
So, back to the fireplace surround. I'm thinking of adding a top to the fireplace that would go up the wall above the surround. I'm also thinking of painting the fireplace. Anyone out there have some ideas for me? The cable outlet and plug in are built into the wall above the fireplace and a flat screen will be up there some day soon.
So...what's your idea for me? Paint it white and make it "pop" like all the designer/decorators like to say? Our make it look like an aged stone piece? It's a cement replica I believe and I'm willing to try a few things. It's only paint, and the more layers the better, right? Leave me a comment on what you would do...that pinky color just doesn't work for me.
