I've decided to do a weekly feature post and call it TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY. I wish I could do a linky party....but I haven't traveled to that side of blogland yet. Maybe I can do some research and turn it into a weekly link up party.
Here is my 1st Transformation Tuesday project:
I found my fireplace on Craigslist last year when we first moved to the new house. It was large which I liked but I wasn't thrilled that it was oak.
I finally decided during the other re-designs that I would tackle this project as well....so you all know how it looked before.
Here it is in it's original purchase condition
Some sanding was needed as you can see on the bottom left I tried just going right over......not happening! I had to lightly sand the entire fireplace first.
Here is what it looked like the middle of my 50% trial.. I used Valspar Very Black.
Here it is now....
I'm very happy with the finish.....you can still see the woodgrain through the paint job. I kept the accessories very simple but still within our exotic island theme in the living room. I think 90% of the accessories in my house are from Home Goods. They just have the best selection of accessories for every color, theme, style!
Hope you will come back next week for the #2 TRANSFORMATION TUESDAY feature!
