Hello…I hope the weekend was good for all.

This weekend, even though it’s still hot and humid here in NJ, I decided that I had to finally do the “cheap” update of my fireplace doors that I’ve put off for the past 2 years or so.

As you can see, the fireplace doors (we have wood burning in family room and gas in the living room) had the 90’s brass (I think this is the last of the polished brass in the whole house!) the frames holding the glass and some bland wood handles.  Not to mention the family room firebox was a bit “used” lol.

I decided to take some high heat matte black paint and update the outside of the family room firebox.  I them took some high heat matte spray paint and did a coat on the brass frames for both sets of doors.  While I was at it, I updated the door handles in both the living room and family room to more French rustic inspired designs

This low-budget update, really gives both fire places a new look and we’re ready for the cold weather and some nice fires.  Now where are those marshmallows? LOL
