Redoing our Fireplace

Quircky finish I thought would be ideal for uneven floor of hearth to resemble other furniture

Well, after sitting and staring at our Den fireplace for almost 9 months since I moved into our finally dawned on me to get some of my artistic tools out and begin the process of creating something fun and yes... a bit unusual finishes for our own home.
Looking around the room, my husband is surrounded with warm tones, leathers and skins that add more browns with the hard wood floors that are found in the home.
So I took note of that and decided to play it up and have fun with the finishes I have done for other clients.
My husband has been wonderful by encouraging me to play with our home and make it ours with our personality....and wants me to paint to my hearts desire. So slowly I will be creating finishes as the room dictates....I'll be posting as the changes continue.
Enjoy the weekend.
