Tag Archives: to paint or not to paint

the great fireplace debate.

To paint or not to paint? That is the question at hand regarding the brown brick fireplace in our basement.

Let me be brief here. I think the fireplace should be painted white (like here or here). The husband, on the other hand, thinks it should stay as is but knows full well that when it comes to interior design projects, his opinion is taken lightly. So in an effort to not jump the gun and whip out my paint brush before I thoroughly think things through here (after all you can’t exactly un-do a project of this nature), I figured I’d ask for YOUR input to get an outsider’s opinion.

So based on the pictures above, what do you think — paint it white or leave it as is?


P.S. Just for the record, I have no intent to ever paint our main floor living room fireplace as I love the charm red brick gives!
