An Homage to Doug

23 Nov

If you used to watch Trading Spaces you remember Doug Wilson. doug was notorious for his outlandish designs but mostly for his love of painting brick fireplaces.
With our painting going on and the wall around the fireplace turning from light to dark the fireplace sort of disappeared and just looked dingy. We’ve got big plans but for now some paint should help freshen it up.
So, last night, as Doug would say, I “did my homework” and put a nice thick coat of primer on the fireplace. Let me tell you, those mortar lines ARE NOT EASY!
It looks better already… more to come.
