This fireplace needed a makeover, so I used limewash to transform the brick, and we added a mantle!
After cleaning the brick, I applied limewash using a masonry brush.
Nic drilled holes into the brick, and then we added brackets for the wood shelves.
Nic drilled in a support for the mantle, then we nailed the mantle in the support.
I painted the fireplace insert with some high heat paint, to freshen it up and modernize it!
