Getting There...

Well, everything is painted and looking so fresh! I am loving the paint color -- Zircon by Sherwin Williams--.just the look I wanted. I couldn't wait to give you all just a peek. I still have to get a mirror for over the mantle and that's what me and my mom (she's here for the week) are doing today.



Also working on finding material to cover the two chairs I got. Once I get the fabric, I'll paint them. The hallway isn't ready for a reveal yet as it is barren. Still trying to figure it out.

Sigh. Love this antique mantle/fireplace. Still can't believe I only paid $30 for it. I painted the top with chalk paint and it matched the rest of the mantle...so it was my easiest fix yet! Happy.

I think "she" just fainted - $30 for this incredible mantle was more than "her" heart could take it would seem..... I have to admit, it really IS beautiful!

Purrs!
