So yes, I love having a splash of intense colour in the living room and the fireplace is such a quick and easy thing to paint that it can be done on a whim. And a whim it was! Just before I out up our Christmas decorations I thought "a nice dark green would look great with all the gold that's going to go up in here", so I grabbed the tester pot of I had (that I've already used all over the house, those Valspar testers are value for money!) and I gave it a coat. One coat. It's a bit patchy but I don't think anyone noticed!
It looks great in here and I love it, but we've been working on the kitchen and I've found myself leaning to more pastel-ish shades in there so I think this colour may not last too much longer in here and I wanted to share it before I take a paintbrush to it again some evening :)
What do you think? Would you ever paint your fireplace a vibrant colour?
