Way back in September I posted about this:
My big, pink, 3-sided fireplace.
I got lots of great suggestions and I think I have a plan in place.
Here's the plan:
- my dad is going to build me a mantel running all the way to the wall
- I'll paint the brass trim
- and paint the tile
- If I can get over my fear of saws, I'm hoping to also add a board and batten treatment to the wall below the mantle, covering the niche.
What do you think of the color? Do you think the texture will be okay? I recall seeing someone else recently who used this or something similar to paint a fireplace surround, but now I can't remember who it was. Does anyone remember what I'm talking about?
BTW- in case anyone was wondering about my "Daddy Chair" dilemma, I must have missed the boat on the leather recliner because I never heard back from the seller. I'm stalking CL regularly for another!
