While Sarah & Drew were in town a while back I mentioned we were going to paint the fireplace. Its kind of like I put ants in her pants saying that because its all she wanted to do the rest of the time! (since it would only take approximately 20 minutes to do! ;) So when Freeland left for work and right before here & Drew were about to leave she whipped out the paint.
It was the easiest project ever!
For 2 reasons:
1. we used paint that was left at the house so no picking out a paint color.
2. Sarah did all the painting! (its kinda her love language!) ha
Here is the before:
This is what I did during all said painting:
chased children around!
And just about done:
(the start of figuring out what I want on there for fall. That part isnt done .. but you get the idea with the paint!)
Looking back I do like how the dark pops out so much more. But for a quick easy fix this got the job done and made the house feel much more like our house.
although daily.. this is what our fireplace looks like:
motivation for River to use the potty
(which he really isnt interested in doing btw)
and the other parts of our weekend with Sarah & Drew looked like this:
hanging all the junk in our house. While this probably excites a ton of people .. its my least favorite part of unpacking. Im way too indecisive! (exactly why Sarah & Drew help us!) We have very gracious friends. If you want to hire Sarah out let me know. ;) just kidding. kinda
