This fireplace wall update is a game changer. The original ‘70s era traditional styling seemed out of place for the new look the homeowners were planning as part of a whole house renovation.
The first step was to create one large room by removing the dividing wall between the family and living rooms. Now the fireplace wall (painted Glidden “Puddle Jumper”) has become a hip part of this stylish new room with shiplap and a custom wood mantel. The existing tiny closet was removed to make way for the floating shelves. New hardwoods replace the old shag carpet. What an improvement!
