Fireplace Tutorial & Source List

Let me preface this post by saying this fireplace was beautiful to begin with. Part of me was torn about painting the beautiful, glossy wood as it truly was in pristine condition.  That said, it wasn’t jiving with my farmhouse/cottage style.  My philosophy is, life is just too short to settle on something that isn’t truly a reflection of you.  […]
