primed and pampered
Well not quite pampered yet. Pampered would be with new floors, new fixtures, and furniture. Oh, how I can’t wait to pick out furniture.
But for now primed will do.

And just to show something other than a white blank slate in this post, here is the fireplace before and after I cleaned it with a wire brush, toothbrush, soap, and bathroom cleaner (as recommended online on how to clean flagstone fireplaces). Yes, I know you can’t see the difference AT ALL between the two images, but I feel better knowing that dirt water came off the fireplace in the first image- and it didn’t in the second image. Still need to tackle the actual INSIDE of the pit, but that’s another project to add to the to do list. I kind of want to paint the inside dark gray…or black…or do we leave it as the exposed brick?
