To Paint or Not to Paint?




Well don't be ridiculous. If you know me then you know they got painted, even though every man who saw them said they were way too nice to paint. What is it with men and bare wood? 









 

So here they are primed and painted and loaded up with books and bullets and breastplates. It is a man room after all. 














Details are not my thing. I'm a big picture girl, but I did try to pay a bit more attention here.  I loved the library feel of this hardware. The paint color on the wall is called Alpine Shadow. 




My daughter and I spent a lot of time trying to decide between this and Frosted Pine. Every man we asked said, "It's the same color".  It was not!






The new mantle is beautiful and makes a statement. The old one did too it was saying, "I'm old and tired".
