Quick & easy fireplace revamp

Lockdown like many of us caused me to look at my home in more depth. All those little jobs and tweaks have been given the time they needed!

Simply painting the surround of my Edwardian stone fireplace has totally transformed the room! Once a dark, dated fireplace is now a stylish period feature.

I really love these miniature logs that I found online which look great stacked together in this way.

I am so pleased with the finished look and it wasn’t expensive at all. I used ‘Zinzer BIN primer sealer’ first and then the colour on top! You have to be careful with the primer and stir it well as it’s quite runny! I had to get it on fast and make sure it was brushed out as it goes off very quickly!
