Yes!! Finally I took the giant step toward changing my fireplace...

You remember my fireplace looked like this...



Yes you read that right...I painted my fireplace! And by me, I mean my son, his girlfriend, and well, I me.  I had the fireplace taped off and newspapers laid out and I waited...and pondered,...till finally my son came over and said "do you want to get that fireplace painted?".  And well, I did, and that's all it took! We were off to the races:).









In for a penny....once I started there was no turning back....
  

Not looking too shabby, and with three of us working away we got the painting done in record time. The paint is a mixture of grey and white (both Benjamin Moore) as I thought the  straight white might be a little too much. This was just right!








Ta Da!!  I like love it!



This looks so much better now, don't you think? I know some people are totally against painting brick...no matter how ugly..but not me! Not now! 

What's next in this transformation you ask? Or more aptly...what do I do next? Well, I realized pretty quickly that I am not a fan of the orangey finish of my mantel and book shelves..so they have to go....gray!!

Stay tuned...
