One more part of my miserable building saga has been completed!
Remember the mess with the Fireplace? How gross and dingy it was? Well, they came out in October and replaced the entire Fireplace... however, they did a very poor job.
They spread the mortar all over it so the entire thing then appeared with an orange smear coating. "Oh don't worry. When it dries out, in the next 4-6 weeks, it'll all be the same color."
Oh really?? I think not. After two months of letting it "dry", the fireplace still looked bad. Instead of having them tear it out and put in a new one again, we (I) opted for a faux paint. I think it completely changes the look of the room, and I love it!
What do you think? My husband absolutely hates it, but I think it'll grow on him.
If you're looking to spruce up your living room, this is a very inexpensive way to change the look to a higher end look. This is also a good idea when putting your house on the market to sell. Your house won't look like the other 20 houses the buyers are looking at.
