If you love French country charm, artisan, decorator and FAT Paint Ambassador Amélie from The Suburban Home is the one to follow. Case in point: this amazing fireplace makeover, achieved with FAT Paint!
Amélie started with a complete blank slate. First she used “Raven” on the trim around the fireplace, creating a more cohesive, one-colour look.
Next… out comes the stencil
Amélie used three FAT Paint colours with the stencil: “Raven”, “Blue Slate” and in the little circles, “Wasabi” (retired).
Once all her work was fully dry, she distressed everything with a sanding block. After that, a light-touch, sporadically placed white-wash with “Warm White” was applied. The look of worn, aged cement tile that Amélie achieved is gorgeous!
The mantle is an amazing piece of old barnwood, but the corbels mounted below each end are the ideal finishing touch to the overall look. Amélie FAT Paint’d each corbel in first “Raven”, sealed with clear coat and then applied a couple coats of “Warm White”. She then wet sanded the white back to reveal the black. The results are FATtabulous!!
The last photo we’re sharing of the fireplace captures Amélie’s dining & living rooms… and the other FAT Paint’d pieces she has throughout her home.
Warm, inviting, stunning! Amélie is an enormously talented decorator and her personal style perfectly captures that French country cottage look!
We’re always grateful to artisans like Amélie who use FAT Paint to create amazing things. If you have a special project that you’d like us to feature here on our TFPC Blog, reach out to me!
