The 80’s …what more do we need to say?
The best generation everrrrrrrr!
Anyone else remember stonewashed jeans?
Okay, so maybe fashion has changed a little over the years but we are hoping this fireplace whitewash will last a little longer.
Many of you may have been following our fireplace makeover. You can read more about it HERE! (Really have to see the 70’s wood paneling and carpet to understand!)
Have you ever had one of those “things” that you walk by and go it’s still not right?
The wall color either needed to change or the brick did.
We really didn’t want to paint the brick but changing out the fake wood paneling wasn’t really in the budget right now.
Ahhhhh, whitewash with some paint we already have on hand!

White washing couldn’t be easier……….
Thin down paint to 50% paint 50% water….. at least.
This was done by about 60% water and 40% paint, if not more. You can always add more but the take away is a killer!
It was done in about an hour.
Although this room still has a few changes up it’s sleeve, it’s coming along nicely.
