Back when I painted my kitchen cabinets, I also painted these built-in bookcases and mantel. I used the same colors that I used for the kitchen cabinets here: Kitchen Remodel - Painting Cabinets

I used a can of Rust-Oleum High Heat spray paint for the fireplace.

  4. This looks great! I've been stalking fireplace makeovers trying to decide what to do with ours. Circa 1968, the year the house was built! Love the built ins. We don't have those, boo!

  14. This looks inspired, there are only a handful of blogs that are inspiring to read and yours is definitely one of them! This would be a great project that i could do for my sister's home, she got new curtains in Perth a month ago and I'm inspired to make her mantle remarkable.
