WOW! What a welcome

Thank you all so much for the wonderful welcome and thanks to Tam for sharing my blog and getting me all these new friends.

I have so enjoyed adding more blogs and reading all your wonderful stories and of course so enjoying all the wonderful pictures of your gorgeous homes, so jealous!

I will share with all of you a picture of my other fireplace which is in my now dining room, (yeah I move rooms around alot LOL)

I would like to take a poll, this fireplace is red as you can see, and I was thinking about painting it black and then grungy it up a bit, my other furniture is black, the table, chairs and hutch, will it be too dark and show all the animal hair or will it look nice?
Please leave comments to help me decide. Many thanks:)


  1. Hi Nancy! My sister and I recently painted her fireplace -- just the opposite colors. First it was black -- we then crackled red paint over it. It is fantastic!! I say, go for it! I'm sure it will look wonderful. As far as the animal hair -- if your house is like mine, animal hair is part of the decor! But my DR, which is all black, does not show it anymore than the other pieces in the house. Good luck -- I look forward to finding out what you decide!

  2. Hi Nancy, I think painting the black over the red and then sanding through to see a little red would look awesome!! Have your heard of Caromal Colours paint, I love it and it gives an old prim look. If you want more info email me
    I love how you have it decorated.

  3. I kind of like the red..would make the fireplace stand out more...but that is just my lil opinion..Welcome to blog land.what would we do without our blog friends. I have 4 dogs and 3 cats and I blog about them a lot :)
