I've finally convinced Charlie to help me tackle updating our fireplace. We painted it all white last year, and while it was an improvement, it's still a heavy wall of brick that feels outdated.
I've been pinning ideas and tutorials for adding millwork over brick, and we've decided to frame out the brick above the mantel as well as both columns to get a look similar to the photos below.

I'm also very excited to announce that I'll be joining the upcoming One Room Challenge with Calling it Home starting April 2nd. We'll be tackling our laundry room that has sat unfinished since May, and I'll be sharing some of my plans next week!
