I just finished putting the first coat of paint on the fireplace!~!! LOL. Okay, I was going to wait, but I figured if I don't like it, it might be the incentive I needed to encourage DH to support my wanting to buy the surround sooner than later. But guess what? I like it. I had a gallon of White Castle (Dutch Boy) and a half gallon of Harrington Beige. I mixed some in a new gallon and I came out with the perfect colour. It's cream but with just a tint of beige.
Warning: Do any of you know how hard it is to paint a fireplace??? Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.... I started 2 hours ago. haha
