When we first saw this house and saw this house had a brick fireplace, I was that special kind of excited where you get all giddy and obsessed. I immediately started Googling fireplace makeovers. At first I was super ambitious, thinking about stone veneer or stuff like that. Thankfully that's why I married my husband. He is my home improvement voice of reason. Once I was sufficiently aware of how much stone veneer would cost, I started looking at cheaper options (and hubs breathes a sigh of relief). It didn't take long for me to stumble across all the beautiful whitewashed brick fireplaces scattered around the web. I probably watched every YouTube video and blog post Google could find on the subject. It took about a month after moving in for me to get the time to do something about ours, but it's finally done!!
