Yet another paint project took place this past weekend at the Caban casa. After getting favorable results with the chair facelift, I decided to give our fireplace mantel the same treatment. It always bothered me that the mantel didn’t match the built-ins alongside the fireplace or the trim above it, so it didn’t take very much deliberating to decide whether or not to go ahead and paint it. I realize many people are opposed to painting wood, but I think after looking at the before + after below that everyone can agree that the paint prevails, or at least in this case it does!
You can see another picture of the mantel in its ‘before’ state here.
Voilà! Crisp, clean & most important — cohesive!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week!
