I don't like the red against that beautiful detailed fire place so I have to say I would paint it another color. I wondering how much can be done because I find the top portion, wasted space as really nothing can go up there without getting dusty. If that being the case and you can do more to that wall, I would close up those two sides and then just paint the wall itself a different color. The fire place seeing that is of thing of beauty would be painted something different then the shelving. I would however change the shelving to glass or stone shelving similar to the fireplace. The wall with the shelving could be a Benjamin Moore color Celtic Linen and the fireplace wall itself would be a lighter shade very close to the fire place. I would if it were me, start with the fire place and design around it instead of the other way around. Actually if you could change the inside of the fireplace that would be great because it doesn't go with the beauty of the stone on the mantel. But I guess that for another day right?

I did this project with coffee filters as I didn't have to cut anything as the form itself was perfect. I then had my kids paint them with craft paints. They then gave them out to grandparents. It's a fun and easy project I also used pipe cleaners for the stems. Actually, they still look good today as there still on my mom desk.

I Love Benjamin Moore Super white for baseboards it's so pure and really white with no other undertones. Also Benjamin Moore ceiling white is the best as it never drips and you don't want that when your painting in a clients home. I do however think the Aura is too highly priced even at my price I'm a contractor $45.00 I want gold in that can for that price.
