Ross and I purchased our first home back in May! We are so incredibly excited to be moving into our very own house! This home was built in 1949. There is evidence of a lot of do it yourself projects throughout every room. But that was a couple of owners ago and now its our turn!
Project #1 - the "straight out of the 80's" gold fireplace. - this project was simple and quick!
cover and tape off the glass, the surrounding brick and the floor. I'm sorry I don't have a photo of the taping job - I was just to excited to finish the project that I forgot to take pictures!!
I did two coats of paint. One can was more than enough. you could use news paper instead of masking paper if you chose - I just happened to have this on hand.
