Project Hopping!

 

 

Hi everyone:)  I hope you guys are doing wonderful.  Our weather is cold today.  Yep, Texas is cold as we speak eerrr (write) here. 

I am linking this post to http://asoftplacetoland-kimba.blogspot.com/2009/10/diy-day.html  Please visit her lovely blog for other inspiring posts!

Does anyone else do this?  I start a project and then get bored so I end up starting another.  I am project hopping!  I hope I’m not the only one. *blush*  I have not finished painting my kitchen cabinets and have started another little project.  You all are not going to believe this, but I am currently painting my fireplace.  You may remember that my fireplace used to be red.  http://mybellarose.blogspot.com/2009/09/say-cheese.html

Well take a peak at what I’ve been doing!  I am not finished with the fireplace yet.  I do plan on painting the ugly brass.  I just couldn’t wait to show y’all what my fireplace looks like so far!  I do need to finish the top part of the fireplace and paint the brass as well. 

Here is a peak!  It is actually not as shiny as it appears in the pictures.

As you can see, I still need to do the cutting in on the bottom of the fireplace.  IMG_4746

I wanted a change on my fireplace because I wanted it to match my new sofa set.  :D IMG_4740

Do you think I accomplished that? :)  I think I did.

I promise that I will show you “after” pictures and details,  once I finish with the fireplace and do some rearranging in my living room.  I want to add a huge mirror right above the sofa.  I think that it will look pretty!  I can’t wait to show you guys!

I do hope y’all have a wonderful Tuesday full of love and happiness.

What a lovely change, my friend. It blends so beautifully. I think I am going to add TRIM to my mantle that I saw on another blog the other day, as I am looking for a change to it.
It is soooo fun seeing these changes of everything everyone does.

Have a lovely warm week. TTFN ~Marydon

I definitely think you got a match there, girl! Looks like a lot of hard work went into that project! And I know you will enjoy it! :-)

Is it really that cold in Texas??? It's a little cooler here but not by much.

XO,

Girl! You do these BIG HUGE projects right before the Holidays!! I will keep my fingers crossed that they are all done by the time Thanksgiving week rolls around.
Have fun! And post pictures when you are done! WITH BOTH!!!!!

Hey Sandra,
I know exactly what you mean. I too am guilty of project hopping. But my motto is...As long as they all get done at the end, that's really all that matters right? Anyway, your fireplace looks great. Can't wait to see it all together. Thanks for sharing. Have a wonderful evening.

Hugs,
♥Ana
