DIY Faux Fireplace with Just Paint!!

Faux FireplaceHello friends!!! I am so excited about this project today!!! last night I went to the hardware store and grabbed some paint because the night before that I decided I wanted a big "fireplace" here in my living room BUT I needed to be able to do it myself... So paint it is...

I had this idea in my head that I wanted to build a fireplace in my living room one day. It would be a day where I had someone to help me or I got the confidence and tools to do it myself but then, my grandpa brought over this electric fireplace he no longer wanted and I decided to put it in my living room. I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it at first but then the next day I started thinking about how I could make a faux fireplace without a bunch of tools or labor. I ended up deciding on PAINT!! I drew up a little inspiration picture LOL and wen't to the store for paint. I shared this whole process on IG stories HERE and saved to a highlight <3


I chose the color Space Black by Benjamin Moore. I'm a Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black kinda girl but this is all my hardware store has and it really is a true black so I'm super happy about it! I grabbed a long roller, a ladder from my dads house and got to work! It was scary on the ladder when I was adding the tape because I am SO AFRAID OF HEIGHTS!!! But... I held my breath and did it and I'm so glad I did!!! This ceiling is TALL so it was intimidating but I gave myself a pep talk and climbed on up the ladder. I can do hard things!!! And because I did... This is the result!

I can't believe how just a little bit of paint made such a big impact. Paint is truly powerful!!! 
I added a faux deer head I had and some sconces from Amazon HERE. I couldn't hard wire the sconces so I grabbed THESE puck lights. I just put a piece of painters tape across the black paint the height I wanted the sconces and used the tape as a guide to screw the sconces into the wall. Put in the puck lights and you have an easy sconce!!!
