I hope you’re all having a good week!
In case this is the first time you’re tuning in this week, make sure you check out my Pink Glamour Christmas Mantel from Monday and my Rustic Christmas Coffee Table from yesterday. Both of these posts are tours that I am in, so if you are looking for some Christmas decor and craft projects, the ladies in those tours will hook you up!
Like most women out, there I am in charge of all of the home decorating. I pick out the paint, the projects we are going to do, and all of the decor. As long as I don’t paint the whole house pink Topher doesn’t really care.
One thing that he did kind of hold his ground on was me painting the mantel white. For a while, we weren’t really sure if we were going to stay in our house once the unnamed child went off to college, but after seeing what was out there in our price range, we decided to stay put.
Until we decided, Topher thought it was best to keep the mantel as it was, as not all people like painted wood. Since we made the decision to stay, he reluctantly gave me the go ahead.
So the day he left for a business trip, I got out the paint.
When I painted the laundry room, I used Pittsburgh Paint’s Grand Distinction® Paint and Primer in One line.
This paint provides outstanding coverage, stain and scrub resistance, and washability.
In the past year it has held up wonderfully, and the cabinets and trim haven’t chipped once — that’s big when you have a teenage daughter that changes her clothes every 5 minutes. That is a heavily used room people.
I decided since I had such a great experience with the paint before, I wanted to use it on the mantel also.
Pittsburgh Paint also has a great Pinterest board to show you examples of some of their paint combinations.
In case you can’t remember here is what the mantel looked like before.
And here is the after!
Doesn’t it look so fresh and clean?
This was definitely a small update that had a big impact.
Next on the agenda is finishing up the hallway. I already finished painting the trim and walls and bought new doors and hardware.
Hopefully it will be warm enough this weekend that I can paint the doors and show you the reveal next week!
