Designer Maria Killam, CMG, used bright orange paint around and over the fireplace here, for a bold look you can easily replicate with any favorite hue.Leigh transformed her dated yellow tile fireplace surround by cutting marble-look adhesive paper into squares and covering the existing tile. An inexpensive update that can be undone if the landlord wants when Leigh moves on.Many have fabricated stainless Steel Mesh or Steel Mesh screens to enable the use of fire glass with these systems without smothering the pilot.

Here’s how Klemm did it: White paint with an eggshell finish was brushed on in small sections, and then wiped down with rags to remove most of the paint.

We got lucky and found a simple mantel at a recycle center that will slip over our existing mantel.
We added molding to the newly found mantel to give it more interest.
