It feels good to back!! I had a bout with food poisoning/intestinal flu??? It wasn't pretty...but lets just say I got a nice jump start to any spring diet plans I had! Hee Hee.
I thought I'd do a little post about my fireplace. This was a dark brown and black brick before I took the paint brush to it. The mantle was oak. I love it now that it's fresh and pretty, but the black and brass doors have always been distracting to my eye!!
I have been brainstorming on how I might hide it in the warmer months when it's not in use. I thought if I ran across some old shutters I could screen it that way. Well, Luck hasn't been on my side in the shutter hunting department. Then it hit me. I have all this old fabric lying around...why not hang a curtain of sorts?!? So, this is what I came up with. I just draped it over a tension rod and VOILA!!! It's not my favorite fabric. I will eventually replace it with a more appealing toile or something a bit lighter for summer, but I'm just so happy I finally solved this decorators dilemma!!
Have a fabulous weekend everyone!! I'm enjoying 70's and sun!! Yipeeee!
