We painted the fireplace!! Our dining room was the room I was most excited to decorate because of the fun built ins and the beautiful fireplace, but as soon as we got in here, I was stumped. After pouring over inspiration pictures and rooms I loved, I knew this room needed something else. And the answer was a bold black fireplace!! The windows and ceilings are so tall that the black fireplace really grounds the space. I am picturing it already with layers of greenery and lights for the holidays while a fire glows inside, can you see it?! Brandon wants to build a new table for this room but currently I’m just trying to decide on some dining chairs. I can’t wait to eat a real dinner in this room!!
The color we used was Sherwin Williams Black Magic (don’t judge a book by its cover, but I definitely judged this paint color on it’s name!!) in a satin finish. It is a very pure black with no visible undertones.
And just for reference, the before!
Love how this room is shaping up, can’t wait to hang some things on the walls and finish styling these bookshelves! XO53
