Designer Maria Killam, CMG, used bright orange paint around and over the fireplace here, for a bold look you can easily replicate with any favorite hue.

First, we rented a demolition hammer to chisel the stone from the fireplace façade. Fortunately, there is a lot you can do to remedy this because a fireplace remodel is completely possible as a DIY project. Fireplace restoration often includes interior and exterior components such as: Stone and brick cleaning, tile cleaning, mortar repointing, damper installation and more.
From creating a raised hearth to installing stone veneer or tile on surrounding walls, wood, gas, and pellet stoves can benefit from a custom treatment, too. Knotty pine wainscoting coupled with barn wood ledges tie nicely with the slate grey tile floor and white stone fireplace surround.
Keep in mind that brick or stone often soaks up the paint very well so you’ll want to prime it first. While contractors may be able to build a beautiful stone or brick fireplace or chimney, the often lack the knowledge or training to build a safe and fully functional fireplace.
