Happy Monday, in spite of the brrrrrr around here! Here’s a quick BEFORE/AFTER for you today about the amazing power of a few buckets of paint. A certain eagle eyed chica commented about my painted brick on Instagram last night and it occurred to me that I hadn't shared this scary BEFORE with you folks. A few years back I painted the brick fireplace wall of the living room in our ranch. Now, for a little backstory, understand that this was battle royale between the mr. and me for about 4 years. I begged him to let me paint the horrible orangey 70s brick – it was terrible, horrible, no good, very bad and dark in an already dark North facing room. After years of my whining, he finally caved.

What a difference! The paint immediately brightened the room and had an enlarging effect. Sorry about the grainy shot - late night Instagram pic. Here are two from last year to give you a clearer picture.
Victory is always mine!
