Painting Fireplace Mantle

One of my first posts was showing how I whitewashed our brick fireplace. However, I didn't paint the mantle at that time because I wasn't sure if I wanted it white or not. After living with it for a few months, I decided I wanted to paint that white too. So now, here is phase 2 of our fireplace makeover!

Phase 3 involves getting rid of the insert.. but I'm nervous about trying to move that, so it's staying for now.

Hoosier Cabinet Makeover


I'm so glad to be able to put this post up. This ol' beauty is where I keep all my fabric and other sewing notions (at least, the ones that don't go in the desk). And it's got a history to go with. This cabinet was my great grandmother's (possibly my great-great as well, but I know great for certain). My mom said she remembers her grandmother rolling out biscuits on this thing. How awesome is that?!

I've been trying to get my craft room more organized so that I can actually craft in it.. I still need to get rid of a large shelf that has no place in this room, but I knew that the biggest task I still had... Was this.......
