PART 2 Renovations: from gold to black

Our fireplace is gold and it drove me a little bit crazy. I don't really mind the green so I taped it off and went a little spray crazy.


Jason was watching Remi while I tackled this little project, and just as I finished the above section, Remi comes running in. She had hold of the black spray paint and I let out a horrified, "noooooooo!" I felt like everything went into slow motion as I reached and she threw. Black spray paint splattered onto our newly installed floor. I think I was kind of in shock and stayed really calm which surprised me. I ran up and set Remi in her crib, told Jason to tend to her and I bee-lined it for Rona just down the street. Run to Rona is a legit tagline! The worker there was super helpful and handing everything I needed very quickly as he subtly implied that I needed to get it cleaned up ASAP. I didn't argue with that! This here is some powerful stuff! Saved my bacon that day. Phewph!

 The floorers came back that evening to finish up and didn't even notice so I figured it was best not to mention it...
But here you have it! It's nothing special.  I think the process of getting the paint on it was far more climatic than the final product haha. Oh well. At least it's no longer gold.
