Before & After

I was talking to my friend and he requested some before and after photos. So here we go - this is all I have quickly and this late in the night.

When we moved in the wood stove wall was an eye sore to me. In the before photo it has already been primed and waiting for paint. But you can see what the original stone (gah! I hated it) looked like where the stove will sit. We are leaving that the same because we weren't sure if there would be a problem with heat of the metal and the paint being in contact. We talked to others and painting the wall was definitely safe. So I chose a color (took me forever to pick a color and this selling of the house finally gave me the kick to decide) and got to painting last weekend. What a project - lots of grooves and bumps to get the paint into. But overall not too bad and I am very happy with how the color turned out. Chris cleaned the original stone part and that really helped make it look a bit better. We moved the wood stove back in – wow is that thing HEAVY! - and taa daa!
