I have been despising our fireplace for approximately three years and four months.
After discussing the matter over and over, Troy and I finally reached a compromise that I could paint the fireplace white. He has pretty strong opinions against paint (hence why all of our walls are white white white), but even he agreed that the painted fireplace looks so much better than it did before.
Now that our fireplace isn’t an awful honey wood color, I am actually excited about decorating the mantel.
I was in a mustard yellow and aqua mood this year, so I switched up the traditional fall colors. And no decor of mine would be complete without a hand crafted wreath (I have a fetish).
