What would you do with this fireplace? Cheap and easy suggestions please :)
I am considering painting the brick white, and leaving the mantle as is. Maybe some stone-like tile for the hearth? Also pulling out the doors and leaving it open, with maybe an iron screen. Any thoughts?
I plan on leaving the knotty pine walls as is (for now), and painting all the trim white, along with light colored furniture. We are renovating other parts of the house before we move in, so are on a tight budget otherwise. I just want to make it look nicer because it's pretty ugly!
