Today we finally finished up the fireplace project that we started back in September. It was a long process of finding the right stone and the fact that we did everything ourselves, even hooking up the gas! My hubby can do anything!
After a couple attempts, we finally got it to work, found the right stone, hearth and wood for the mantel.
The mantel is solid pine. I stained it using the color Jacobean by Minwax. I absolutely love this color!
I really could just sit and look at it. I wish you could see how the stone sparkles in the light. It's beautiful!
I wanted to keep it very neutral so I could change color as I wanted.
Right now I am on an aqua blue kick! I wanted some subtle pops of it in this room.
I had lots of "jar fillers" already that were all neutral. I wanted just a few blue ones.
So outside I went with some pine cones and grapevine balls and a can of spray paint!
It's perfect now!
I love spray paint! It's such an inexpensive and simple way to change or add some color!
I added a few of my burlap pumpkins and now I am all set for fall! This is all the decorating I did this year since the room was tore apart!
