And there are about 100,000 other things I should have been doing in place of tootling with chalkboard paint AGAIN.
But I saw this idea last summer and stored it away in my mind. I remembered the other night when we were out to dinner celebrating my youngest sister's birthday. We were laughing about the positive spin realtors put on bad houses and my brother said, "yeah. . . a realtor can just wave his hand at a wall and say, you could put in a fireplace there!"
That comment reminded me of the faux fireplace.
|I penciled the lines for the mantle and . . . mmm. . . firebox? is that what you call it? I don't know, I've never had a fireplace.|
|(best paint cleanup tool ever)|
|Later tonight after EVERYBODY was in bed I repainted the firebox. |
A fireplace my firefighter can approve of. Except that he didn't really approve. . . he saw it and said. . .
"WELL! I can see somebody is totally ready to paint things!"
Of course he is referring to that entire rental house that needs to be painted from top to bottom. I will be getting started on that very, very soon. After I finish my coffee by the fire.
