Ideas for updating my brick fireplace

So when I read that Cushing Custom Homes updated the exterior and added a new kitchen onto this one in North Wilmington, Delaware, I was eager to see how it turned out!Cushing says they gave it a “Complete exterior facelift with new siding, windows, front door, painted brick, painted shutters, cupola with copper roof, front entry and columns.” I love that they updated the house and gave it fresh curb appeal while maintaining its original traditional look.It was so easy but it really made such a huge difference in this room!You can find the budget fireplace makeover details here.


I liked it, but it just didn’t fit in with the new direction of my living room.We will be opening up the doorway a bit more between the dining room and kitchen and making it into an arch.You can see where the archway and new kitchen will be in the image above! You can read about our ‘mood’ for the new kitchen here. I enjoyed having you over to see a bit of our house progress.But I have TONS of photos to share, so let’s get started!


I’ll let you peek around our main living areas today, and I’ll share our bedroom tomorrow.

With that said, this tour will be more of a look at “my house in the fall” than a look at the “101 ways I decorated with pumpkins” because that’s how I roll and it’s just the stage we’re in with our remodeling projects.
