You would think that I have considered all options a million times but no. If I did I would have a definitive answer and not be sitting on the fence. Paint...there that is the cause of so much unrest.
But it's only paint you say...you can unpaint aka strip it if you don't like a painted surface.
But not in this case!
How about a huge orange brick fireplace in a somewhat small room! There's no turning back when it comes to painting brick!
I love the look of a painted fireplace in a cottagey kind of room. I don't have that kind of room or furniture. I just hate the colour of the brick. I've had the room a beautiful terra cotta....but the entire room glowed in the morning sun, giving the effect that the room was on fire. (Only Stevie Nicks could make that inviting to me!)
Then I painted the room out a lovely yellow-gold. Not an 'in your face' colour but something that is quite neutral feeling. But alas...I'm tired of it and the orange glowing fireplace.
Do I or don't I? Only I will know when the time feels right. I survived painting good wood...one of my 101 things to do in 101 days...and I love how the piece turned out. So do I step outside the box and just go for it? What is the worst thing that could happen...I absolutely hate it...and then I can resource different options. Like perhaps moving!!!!
Just kidding girls!
