And then, I started painting the fireplace. I sprayed the insert with a gloss black and removed as many of the shiny brass pieces as possible to spray them silver. I had to paint the ones on the doors (including the handles) in place. Tricky. The tile is primed and ready for a faux finish. I'll paint the mantle first so I don't drip paint on my hard work doing it the wrong way around.
My goals for today are to put two coats on the fireplace mantle and to work with the painted fabric to make the patches for the Vogue 8934 coat. The main fabric seems to be working well and I've decided to use two of the painted fabrics for the patches and need to play with the placement of each on the design wall. I really wanted to get to that last night only there wasn't enough time and I didn't want to rush the process trying to get a picture for the blog so.... just a fireplace today.

Grateful - that tile and countertop paint = a color change with less mess and less expense
Tenacity is when you follow your heart - when the whole world is screaming to get back into your head.
