Fireplace!!

I've had a WEEKEND OFF in more than 2mths! Take a look at the first thing I did. I hate, hate, hate this white fireplace. So blah! So this weekend I was home alone with my paint, glaze, and extra money from working so much.
I hit a couple of garage sales and found some great vintage decor. Then I started painting and didn't stop until I had a fireplace I LOVE to look at. Ahhhh...accomplishment feels so great!

Wow, that is absolutely awesome!
I think I found your blog when it was featured on TCB and I have to tell you your projects are amazing. Especially the chalkboard table, that was the neatest idea ever! I would love to have the creativity and the talent that you have. I look forward to seeing more projects in the future!
