Painted Fireplace

I DID IT!
I painted our fireplace!
I had asked you all HERE what you thought about me painting it in an accent color, and you all said, Yes!
A lot of you told me to not go as dark of a color as my inspiration picture, so I took your advice and went with a color called, Fisherman's wharf by Valspar
Great name, right?

 

Again, Don't mind the mess.  When I get a paint'n the whole rest of the house takes a backseat.
OK, So here is what the fireplace looked like before:

And to tell ya the truth, when I first started painting the fireplace, I wasn't so sure I liked it.  I kept standing back and staring at it, and then taking lots of pictures, and then staring at them... blah blah blah.  Meanwhile my little Jax is watching his little t.v. show saying, "Mom, you keep getting in my way!"


But once I got it all painted, I loved it! 
I think the color flows nicely with the wall color, as well as the color in the sunroom.
 
 

 And then when I took this mirror image picture from across the room,  I really Loved it!
 

 I think the best part is that I painted it all with just a sample size Vaspar paint from Lowe's, which cost about 3 bucks.  Which means if ever I change my mind on the color, or simply just want to change it again,  for only 3 dollars and about 10 minutes I can do that,  and it will change the whole entire look of the room.   It just may be a different color every couple of months,  who knows!

Thank you everyone for stopping by.
And Thank you all for your advice on painting my fireplace, you're the best!
I've got more changes in the room to share with you soon. So stick around!
