Before Christmas I mentioned that the fireplace bugged me, can you remember? Is it bad? Nope! Is it me? Nope! But lately I have been just so blah. Why should I make myself so much work and replace the mantel when it’s not really bad and looking just fine? I feel like a really lazy blogger lately, too content to tackle any projects because there is so much other stuff going on. Well maybe when wrestling season is over I will snap out of this funk.
So on Friday I thought that I should just paint over the dark silver. It looked fine in the photos but actually wasn’t anymore, there were so many holes from nails and other marks. A freshly painted fireplace might just do the trick.
I also felt like playing musical rugs and pillows again and I like it a bit better now.
So I switched out the bedroom and fireplace rug. Last time I had this shag in the living room, my white cat Lucy didn’t like it there and peed on it twice. Nice right? She left it alone in the bedroom but not in the living room. Lets see if she approves this time. And I also switched out the two sunbursts.
Be prepared for lots of photos with different pillows 😉 and some fresh greenery.
And here is the white sun burst mirror:
Which throw pillows do you like best for that area?
I still would really really love for the mantel to be more chunky and modern and not the flimsy builder standard but with the little changes I made I think I can live with it a little longer. I actually have to live with it a little longer because while writing this post the doorbell rang and this little box arrived:
I have to snap out of the funk asap and put my thinking cap on. It’s hard to imagine anything passed the snow and ice outdoors right now. But the cats out of the bag now, I’ll be participating in my first Home Depot Style Challenge, the Patio Style Challenge it is.
Hold me, I’m scared. It’s due in March and there won’t be any leaves on the trees or even any green grass. What’s a girl to do?
That’s it for today.
