in a custom built home in Baton Rouge, LA! We added a custom faux finish over an embossed paper to this fireplace to give it some drama!
This fireplace was originally painted white and was pretty plain. The builder wanted us to add a wow factor to it! The two center panels slide out to reveal an enclosure for a television. I forgot to get a totally before picture, but here is one after we started. We started with a nice Lincrusta embossed wallcovering….installing it only in the two front panels. If you’ve never seen Lincrusta, it is a clay based wallcovering that is applied like wallpaper (http://www.lincrusta.com/TheLincrustaCollection.Asp).
Here are a couple of close up pictures of the Lincrusta after it was finished!
Here is the fireplace completed with an antiqued bronze finish!
