Remember when I talked about painting the hearth of my fireplace? I was inspired when I saw one similar to mine on Erin's blog. If you follow me on Instagram (modernjane), you may have seen the above photo. Proof that I finally got around to doing it! Now that it's finished, I can't believe I didn't do it a long time ago. It didn't take long at all and I'm really happy with how it turned out!
I vacuumed the tile and washed it really well, then taped very carefully all around the hardwood floor.
I apologize for the gross bone in the corner of the photo. We are those people who give their dogs pig knees and pretend it's not gross that they carry it all around the house for weeks at a time.
I used a paint brush to cut in and a foam roller for the rest. I used a Rustoleum flat black paint and the can recommended only doing one coat. Within 20 minutes I was done. Only thing to do was to wait for it to dry and to keep Beaufort off of it.. easier said than done!:)
Much better, wouldn't you agree?
