Hallelujah! The Fireplace is done. Confession, I honestly never thought it would be complete because I have a horrible habit of starting projects and never finishing them…it drives my husband nuts. Thankfully I have him, he is a “do it the right way” kind of man so he always does such a great job (although it usually comes with telling me I need to sit the bench and just watch). We are a good team, and he is easy on the eyes so I was happy to watch him work for 3 hours. However, it was a sad realization we have no Chip and Jo Gaines in us as much as I wanted to believe we did, but its all good. Just another realization that our kind of real isn’t a perfect one and I’m happy
We started this project at Home Depot, gathering the necessary tools and things we needed which totaled out to be about $45! We were not sure if we wanted a white wash look or plain white, and after trying the white wash we chose plain white because it looked much cleaner and more our style! We taped up any part that met the wall, dusted off the fireplace, and began panting.
We started by painting the grout first, it is important to really get a good amount of paint in there because any sort of darkness looks really bad. Start to finish this project took about 3-4 hours,we did 3 coats. I highly recommend anyone thinking of doing this project,go for it! If someone were going to fail at it, it would have been us…so give it a try!
Have a great rest of the week!
