Updating a Brick Fireplace for Less Than $20! August 13, 2014
Well, hello there!
Today, I thought I would give you a peek inside the new Tahoe house! Remember, I told you about the curse of wallpaper, from the 80’s?
The red brick fireplace is a nice feature in the room, but I wasn’t crazy about the red part. So, I figured I had nothing to lose and decided to paint it. I had heard from the milk painting crowd I hang with, that brick is super porous and that milk paint will stick to it like glue.
I mixed the Miss Mustard Seed’s Grain Sack color lighter for this project. About 1 part paint powder, with 2 parts cool water. I avoided painting the grout, which was pretty easy to do.
There’s still room for tonight’s (Thursday’s) Revamp a Lamp class! 6-8 p.m. The lamp and all paint supplies are included!
Saturday’s class is a short one, but it covers Gel Stain Application for Cabinets. It’s at 1 p.m. and should only last an hour. You’ll paint a cabinet door with gel stain and find out just how easy it is to transform your kitchen cabinets, for next to nothing. Perfect if you plan to sell your home soon…or just moved in and replacing cabinets isn’t in the budget!
That’s all for now. I hope you’ll find some time to do something creative and fun, today!
