We have lived in our house for almost 8 years now. In those 8 years we have done a few home improvements here and there, but not nearly as many as needed.
When we first saw the house there was so much mauve on the walls. Our home was previously owned by a very nice retired couple. A lovely couple who loved a nice Dusty Rose. Of course like all new owners of a "used" home we simply said "Oh we can paint". HAHAHA. In 8 years we have painted 2 rooms. Well 3 if you count the nail polish exploding incident in the kitchen and the red stains on the wall, cabinet and ceiling. Yeah I don't either.
So I had just finished reading a novel by The Crafty Chica all about these strong independent crafty Chicanas. And being the good follower my parents raised I had to get some crafty-ness out of my system.
Our mauve fire place mantle.
I saw this as a do-able project. Not too big. Paint would not cost very much. So I just had to pick a color. As I talked to Joey about my plans I told him I couldn't decide on a color. So he said "Well take a picture then use photoshop to change the mantel color" and I was like "or I can just close my eyes and imagine different colors."
Man Joey really lacks...
So a quick $15.00 trip to the Do-It Center (haha do-it ) and 3 coats of paint this happened...
Yea the Dusty Rose has bit the Dust. I love it so much.So much that I threw some paint onto the front door frame to force myself to paint that too. When I was done I wanted to paint EVERYTHING this color. I keep eyeballing our dining room table chairs.
