I finished it! The fireplace, that is. The one that used to look like this:

First I painted it white, which I talked about in this post.

But the brass was all nasty looking so I decided to just spray paint it with some heat-tolerant spray paint. So I masked it all off with blue painter’s tape

then used cheaper masking tape to put newspaper all around so I wouldn’t get black overspray all over my beautiful white.

Then I went to town! I thought about doing white but I quite  like how the black turned out. Validate me.

I still have yet to light a fire. But I did bring some firewood in and set it next to the fireplace, so that’s a start.

Oh yeah and I ran ten miles on Saturday.
