Before Christmas I had seen a fireplace that was re-finished that I fell in love with. I decided to make a mental note of it and after Christmas try and attempt it. I was so gung ho about doing it myself but slowly Ben talked me out of it. I think he wanted to do it honestly. I'm glad now that he did talk me out of it and that I let him do it, because it ended up being a lot more work then we realized. I think I could have done it hands down but I think I would have gotten frustrated! :) It turned out SO GOOD. I was so glad he has patience that I don't!! Before the fireplace was all white and just kind of blah. It really pops now!
Here it is (sorry this was with my phone)...
