Our fireplace was one of the things in our house that didn't need any fixing up when we moved in. It's very traditional with red brick and a white mantle. The brick itself is real- not the fake stuff and overall, it's a perfectly nice fireplace.
Except for one thing- I'm thinking of painting it white. The red brick isn't working so well with the brown and ivory color theme I'm trying to work in the living room. While the red doesn't look bad, I feel like white brick would look more cohesive. The only problem is that I'm nervous if we don't like how it looks painted, we can't go back. What do you think? Should I paint it white or keep it as is?
