Shake things up at home by painting an old, red brick fireplace a bold and unexpected shade. Jennifer, the crafty do-it-yourselfer behind The Suburb Experiment, pulled off the look of Staffordshire brick, which is a gorgeous shade of blue, using paint. The trick behind this project is using paint to tint the bricks instead of thickly covering them with flat color. To do the blogger combined one part blue paint and one part white paint with around four parts of water. Then she applied the homemade color wash to each brick using a brush. Then, before the paint dried, she wiped off the excess color using a clean, dry rag.

No one would ever guess that your fireplace is builder grade with this clever DIY by Amanda Hervey, one of the three bloggers who writes for Our Storied Home. She used colorful Bali Turtle Pebble Tile in soothing blue and green shades to transform a beige hearth into an ocean-inspired fire surround. It took roughly eight, 12- inch sheets of the pebble mosaic tile to complete her project. Hervey suggests you can use leftover tiles to makeover other objects in your home like an old terra-cotta planter.
