I used to have lighter leather couches and so for contrast I had painted the fireplace brown and had a framed print that I liked but it had a lot of navy blue in it (matched where it was originally purchased for - in our former house's dining room)...anyway it kept bugging me that the room seemed too dark with these darker new couches (I'd paint that coffee table, too, if my husband would let me!) So here was my project - paint the fireplace and add a mirror! Someday we'll put stone on this fireplace, but until then, this is what I'll have.
My silly daughter Maddie just had to be in the photo, too!
I painted this, too. Watch out when I get the paint out! You might get painted, too!
