As I mentioned last time, Jenn is out of town for work for ten days. We are halfway through and I am not insane yet. Success!
Anyway, I have some house project to work on which, if you know me, I suck at. But I worked on painting our fireplace this week. We painted, well, my nephew painted, our family room walls, and we decided to paint the fireplace too. Why you ask? Well, take a look at what it looked like.
A little on the 70s side, don't you think? We decided that when we painted the room we'd have to do this as well. I was a bit worried since it is finished wood and I knew it would be hard to cover. I wasn't wrong.
On day one I put a coat of primer on. I was actually more nervous after I did this. See how much you can still see through it? I didn't think anything would stick to the wood.
I took a picture after the second coat, but I can't seem to find it now. But, it was a little better. I felt a little better.
The first coat of paint went on pretty well. I could still see the wood, but it was much less noticeable. Progress!
Finally, I applied the last coat today. It's like a whole new fireplace!
Of course, now we need to put something up. It looks too bland by itself. Don't you think?
Okay, now for some well deserved rest.
