To continue with the crafty catch up, here's my Fireplace! I posted a very pitiful Photoshopped version of my fireplace. Then one day, I took the plunge! I went to Lowes and picked up a quart of Kilz primer and went to town on it! The change is amazing!

So here's the before and after:

Yeah, I still need to clean the glass on the doors. But if it was perfect I'd have nothing to distract me from staring at my computer screen =)
