family room redo part 2

After installing the television above the fireplace I started on the fireplace itself. It was desperately calling to be painted white. To me white is just a more classic airy feel. It took two coats of primer and about five coats of paint, but it was well worth all the work. I love our new fireplace!
What I was most excited about was to begin painting over that red wall. I used Valspar Signature paint with primer in a matte finish. The color I used is called barnwood. I cannot say enough about this paint it is awesome! It only took ONE coat to cover that red wall!!! So happy with the new color!
