My client's home started out with lovely fireplaces that were made of cement. She liked them originally - but was ready for a change.
~ Here's an up-close of the cement "before" ~
~ "During" - after the primer had been applied ~
~ Voila! Total transformation to look like travertine marble with a flat finish. She didn't want 'glossy'. ~
~ Her other fireplace. ~
~ She had asked someone else to paint it a brownish color. But she was never happy with it. It was too plain with no detail. ~
~ After! With the added detail it really brings the fireplace to life. And this matches her décor perfectly. ~
Just another example of how you can transform the look of a room with paint and for a reasonable cost.
