Fireplace Mantel Before & After

I’ve been wanting to re-do our fireplace for years.. I think it took seeing some before & after examples online before I had the courage to attempt it.  The process was super simple, and I can’t wait to tackle the next paint project.  To avoid sanding, since the oak wood had a glossy finish to it, I applied a coat of primer, then painted.  I love how it turned out!

Primer: $17.98
