The Romantic Fireplace
It has become a cliché, but that's probably because it’s true—the most romantic spot in the house is front of the fireplace. Dim the lights, get a cozy little fire going, pull a couple chairs up to the hearth or maybe open a bottle of wine and stretch out on the floor.
The fireplace is the place to be for an intimate evening at home.
But any hopeless romantic will tell you that these things need some planning. For example, if you've got an ugly fireplace, is that going to put a damper on your romantic evening? Would you want to snuggle up in front of this?
Painting an ugly brick fireplace is a great remodeling idea that can transform an ugly fireplace into the centerpiece of a room. Try a fireplace paint kit for an easy project that you and your mate can do in a single weekend. You can make a fun project out of painting that ugly fireplace, and then later on you can enjoy your handiwork when you get some alone time. Or surprise a loved one by painting that ugly fireplace one weekend when they are out of town—it’s the perfect spot for the end of a romantic evening.
So if you have an ugly eyesore sticking out into your living area, consider a quick remodel to transform it into a cozy place for you and a loved one.
