A Simple Way to Update Your Fireplace!

Are there things in your home that you would like to update, but don’t want to deal with the hassle and expense of “replacing” them?  A colleague of mine posted this article on her Facebook page recently, and I thought it was a brilliant idea!

A designer name Patti Houston who wrote a blog post for Flüff (a furniture rental and home staging company located in Vancouver, Canada) explains how to transform accent pieces on a fireplace from a dated brass to a sleek and neutral black color.  All you need is three supplies (TSP, steel wool, and a high-heat matte black paint) that cost around a total of $25, and it only takes about 20 minutes!  Read Patti’s blog post for step-by-step directions…  Pretty cool!
