Fireplace Mini Makeover: Black Magic

Our living room started out like this...

Underwent a pretty major transformation, thanks to some paint and primer...


But I just didn't feel like it was "finished" yet. For a while I couldn't figure out quite what it was...and then I realized, I need to paint it black! Thanks to some black magic, I feel complete..


Ok, no promises that I won't change something up again, but for now...I'm loving it! 

Paint: Olympic's Black Magic (No-VOC)

AND my questions is....

How do you manage to paint without the young'in getting into the paint and "helping"? Do you have someone watch him? Does Daddy take him for a walk? Or do you some how super-mom it and just keep him away while you watch him?

I am loving the black. Great move to go that direction. I keep thinking one day I will paint one of my rooms black, so cool!

Super awesome. So glad you took down the second "mantle?". Sooo great!! And the black makes a huge difference!

Nice makeover.

Simple but elegant...

Love the mirror and mantle.

I still have to find the courage to paint any of my walls black.
