Next I busted out the SuperPaint. I know what you're saying. "Hey Jen, that's exterior paint, in fact isn't that the color of your garage doors? And does Mr. Handsome know you are painting that on your kitchen floor?" And I say back at you, "Just shut up and listen, it's for the preschoolers!"
So after a rough coat of paint, because bricks and fireplaces are never perfect. A little grout (buttermilk white paint) and a tissue "fire," I constructed the ideal fireplace for St. Nick to come down in a bound! I wrapped the legs in gift wrap and added some wire ribbon to give them a little dimension. It looks great!
