A Peach of a Fireplace Remodel

The before and after pictures really say it all: a fireplace built into an oppressive wall of ugly brick transformed into a vibrant, bright showpiece in less than a day. Virginia artist and designer Suzy Spence did all the work herself despite her husband being "completely opposed to painting the brick."

The results speak for themselves.

Check out the details of Suzy's family room remodel on her blog GeorgiaPeachez.
