Wanting to do a total remodel of their kitchen and living space, these homeowners went to an open house looking for ideas. The home was a split level that had been “flipped” with the same layout as their home and an almost identical fireplace.  I refurbished the fireplace for the contractor and when they saw it they knew they wanted the same thing for their fireplace.  The textured stone plaster and several shades of gray glazes, some in darker colors than than I usually use, made this fireplace a beautiful focal point.  Lighter colors would have looked washed out against the dark gray wall.  As you can see from the photos, the fireplace looks great with the new furniture and color scheme.  They are thrilled with how it turned out!
