When we moved into this house, we configured the furniture arrangement with the fireplace as the focal point. The only problem was, it wasn’t much to look at (in my opinion). Here’s what I came up with for an easy fireplace makeover.
My first thought was to add molding stretching from the mantel to the ceiling to add more presence. All I needed was 2 bending boards like I used in my Board and Batten tutorial, 1 trim piece, and 1 crown molding piece. Total cost $15 (mostly the crown). I used the same Whisper White paint by Sherwin Williams that matches all my baseboards, trim, and Kitchen cabinets. I always keep that in stock!
