Than I had this bright idea to paint my "drabby" white fireplace so that it added a bit of color to the space. I went out and grabbed a few (okay like fifty) swatches and chose my favorite ones to tape up on the fireplace.
Some of you might be thinking "there's no way she was going to paint it bright pink..." oh but I am serious when I say heck yes I would have if my husband didn't live with me. However, that isn't the case and it's a good thing b/c I'm sure a bright pink fireplace would get old after a while.
Anyways I taped it off, bought a slanted bristled brush and paint...and went to work.
Color choice: Rich Navy by Glidden Paint
