We're a few weeks away from moving into Casa Saccullo and the paint job was just completed yesterday! Woo! Our painters did an amazing, meticulous job. I would recommend them in a heart beat if you are looking for someone in the Bay Area.  

The fireplace was one of the many paint makeovers we gave to the interior. It's amazing how a fresh coat can really transform a space! Here's the "before" shot:

 

 Before, staged for market photos.

As you can see, the walls were a sad antique white and combined with the floors, it was doing nothing for the space. (Not to mention the staging!).

Although I appreciate a natural stone fireplace I just felt like the look was dated overall. There were skeptics regarding the fireplace repaint, but I stuck to my guns. I'm a "light and airy" person through and through and I knew I wouldn't regret it! We did the walls, fireplace and ceilings in Benjamin Moore "Chantilly Lace".

Im in love with the result and can't wait to show more progress pics as we move in and make the house our home! 

What do you think?
