Chalk Paint Project Using Van Gogh Sunflower.
In between my Decorating business, my kooky kids and my Online Consulting I’ve been a busy lil’ gal!
Because of these things (and maybe a weee bit of OCD) my garage is bursting with furniture that needs some serious KLC. Pieces I could make some money on to invest in our children’s futures. Pieces I could paint/sell to free up some room in our poor garage. Pieces I could….nah, screw that. I’M GOING TO PAINT OUR FIREPLACE!
Now don’t panic, not our brick fireplace in the living room (which is going to happen inevitably) – I mean our electric fireplace.
I got this handy-dandy little fireplace on Used Nanaimo for $100. I was happy with the quality and style and it fit perfectly in between the 2 windows in our dining room (37 awkward inches) – it was fate! However, I wasn’t happy with the traditional, boring wood stain and couldn’t WAIT to slap some paint on it!
The yellow is an amazing compliment to my Rust Feature Wall and the fireplace itself adds ambience and interest to a wall that was just waiting for some inspiration.
I painted it with Van Gogh Chalk Paint Sunflowers – a beautifully rustic and rich yellow. I distressed it and used dark wax to age it to perfection (like me).
I love the way our Dining Room feels now – warm and cozy with just a nice lil’ squirt of mustard!
