There is nothing more special than a home with a hearth. It is a place that provides warmth in the winter and an irreplaceable architectural and design element to any space. Today’s Rooms to Love is a simple cottage style sitting room that boasts an amazing fireplace. We always love seeing the before and after of a DIY project, but this fireplace is unrecognizable! Taken from an outdated eye sore to a simple and elegant focal point, this hearth has been given new life. Using the clap board over the original brick creates a built in feel that provides a more stately look and feel to the whole fireplace. The slate gray paint is a fantastic choice to finish the makeover, as it looks more refined now, and the color will help to hide the inevitable soot that happens after using it.
