Eureka! No more stupid brick fireplace PAINTED the same red color as the red brick. I would really love to know the logic of the person who did that. It is like painting an orange ORANGE!
Anywho. At least it is done and I love it. It lightens up the room and more importantly makes it look clean. I have never had such an affinity for cleanliness as I do now after living in this house. I want it sparkling.
We had to create a "Boy in the Bubble" setup in the living room to do this operation. It was pretty funny and Marc kept threatening to keep me in there and feed me thru a trap door. Real Funny.
So this is all looking very white-on-white. The inside of the fireplace and the concrete slab in front of it will end up being black, which will help, but we also paint the ceiling a subtle color. Just Like we are doing/did in the dining and parlor. Well, I don't think you can call the parlor ceiling orange subtle, but oh well. You get what I mean.
Next up: more porch. Yep. Bet you are as excited as I am. Blech.
