The fireplace in our living room is made out of drab grey bricks, and I've been wanting to paint them ever since we moved in. (I'd love to resurface them one day, but right now paint will have to do.)
The walls are a sage green (there is one light brown wall that goes down the staircase on the side). It has a simple painted white mantel, and is flanked by two built in bookcases, both also painted white.
I could just paint it white, but I'm thinking something a bit more interesting. Any ideas?
