Hi friends. I didn't even notice until just now, but my last post was my 200th post! I think it will be giveaway time when I reach 100 Followers!
So, I swear I'm not on a mission to completely change our master bedroom but it just seems that all of my recent projects have been in that room. We have had a faux fireplace in our master for several years now. It's the kind where you can actually have a fire using gel cans. We have never actually had a fire in it but it's a nice addition to the room. I looked through tons of pictures and could not find a "before" shot for you but it was just a very plain, darkish brown wood. ***UPDATE: Mom just called and she found a before picture in this post.*** In fact, it was so boring that we added a scrolly wood applique shortly after we got it to dress it up a little.
I decided to paint it last week and I love how it turned out.
My first coat of paint was Annie Sloan's French Linen. My second coat was Annie Sloan's Old Ochre. I sanded and then used dark wax all over. I wanted the columns and the front facing to be a little different so I sanded those areas after applying the wax to get to the lighter color.
It almost looks like stone at certain angles.
Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
