On my weekends away from baking which are few and far between, I love to do home projects. When we moved into our home a few years ago, everything was a blank canvas. I am not an oak girl. I love dark woods and warm whites. My first project was to reface the fireplace. I thought to myself, how hard would it be to reface this little ol' fireplace. The answer was....all weekend. Sanding, priming, spray painting the gold trim and painting. It was a long process, but well worth it. The end result was exactly what I wanted and I saved a lot of money doing it this way instead of removing and replacing it. Here is a picture of my before and after. Anyone else out there have any before and after pics of their home projects? Share them with me if you want. I would love to see them.
