A Fireplace Makeover
Hope you are having a great weekend.
I spent yesterday at the new home of our friends, they just moved into a big beautiful new home on a golf course with an amazing view.
They decided that their fireplace looked too bland. It actually was all beige, the whole entire thing. They asked me if I could faux paint it to look more like stone, and to give a warmer feel to the room. So I got out my paints and glazes and went to work. It took me about 4 hours to get this look.
They loved the way it turned out, and it was just the look they wanted. They are very pleased with the outcome, and so am I. I had a lot of fun painting, and they made me a fantastic lunch, which we had out on their new patio. We ate, and watched the golfers, bunnies and lizards.
They were very surprised that you could get a look like this just using some paints and glazes. I was a bit nervous, as I have never painted for anyone but myself and my daughter. I always say that it's just paint, and if you don't like it, paint over it. That was not the case, they loved it, and really appreciated my creativity.
I don't have a before picture but, it was big, beige,and boring, until I got my little hands on it.
Hope you have a wonderful week.
Chat again soon.
