No More Brown Mantel! YAY!

Hello Fellow Thrifters and Friends,
    This weekend was so great because we got some home projects done. The best one from this weekend was painting my mantel.  WAHOO!!! I am one happy home owner. When we were looking at the home listing for our house I didn't even want to look at it because of the ugly mantle. It's pretty funny how things work out isn't it? I ended up loving the rest of the home so much that the mantel did not matter so much any more. Fast forward 7 months and we finally got around to painting the mantel the same cream as the walls.
Putting the primer up was so much fun. Good bye brown. You will not be missed. 
Two coats of primer and two coats of paint later and my mantle is looking so pretty. I would love to remove the whole thing, but since it is actually part of the wall I don't see that happening any time soon. In the mean time I love that it does not stand out as much any more. 
Pin It Now!
