Fireplace Makeover

Why do we wait so long to do certain things?  For the last 7 years I have wanted to paint my fireplace, every day I would look at that brassy ugliness and tell myself "today I will do it" and I didn't... until today.  The sad thing is, it took me a whopping 20 minutes to complete the ENTIRE thing (which included prepping it with taping everything off).

It was so easy, I just taped the glass off and put newspaper on the brick so I didn't paint that as well.  Once the taping off was complete I used Rustoleum's heat resistant spray paint in black.  A couple of coats later and it was done.  Seriously like 20 minutes tops!  Make sure you open lots of window's, it was a nice day here and the windows were open but I still got a good contact buzz!!

Here are some before and afters!  Next time I won't wait so long to complete such easy tasks!

So Thankful

I have so much to be thankful for.  I have 2 fabulous boys I couldn't be more in love with!!  They make my heart super happy (hey, I think I got that from Kai Lan!)... they are truly amazing.  I love them so very much.  They make me laugh, they make me melt wtih their loving words, they are so beautiful - inside and out.  Plus I have one fantastic husband that I am equally in love with!!  He takes care of the boys while I work outside of the home.  He takes care of every aspect of our house (even the laundry and cleaning!!), he is a great listener and the greatest husband ever!!  I'm very thankful!

I am wishing all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving!!  May you be filled with peace, love, good food, family, friends and maybe a couple of glasses of wine this holiday! :)
