Fireplace Before & After

Woohoo! The shiny polished brass is *almost* gone from my house (have to switch out the dining room chandy for one I bought almost 2 years ago, oops). But at least I can say it is gone gone gone from my living room! Woot!
Here is the shiny offender before:


And here is the lovely after (2 coats of heat resistant paint in the only color they had: satin black):
 

And now my nesting has turned on the brick. I want to white wash them, and don't tell me I can't or I shouldn't.....it's my house- I live here. :)

So hope you like the transformation!

LOVE IT! I've talked to the hubby until I'm blue in the face about the ugly brass in our home. He agrees, it's just not high on the list of priorities (not for him anyway..) We're getting hardwood floors put in soon, if we ever decide on a color. Maybe then he'll have more incentive to do the pretty stuff..
