So, we have a fireplace we can’t use.
Gigi and I are both super upset about it.
I kind of want to paint it white, but Eric says NO WAY! Which I get. It does make me cringe to paint over the 1930′s original brick. But then again the brick looks all dirty and crap from ill attempts at fire starting by previous tenants.
The main problem with filling a fireplace with decorative stuff is Ginger Jane, and soon, my lil man. Kids are the worst! I JOKE.
We did try this one time…
But the magnetic paint wasn’t REALLY magnetic, and like most chalkboard paint, the chalk doesn’t REALLY erase. It ended up looking kind of junky, and not nearly as rad as the one above.
I love the idea of filling it full of logs, maybe if I packed them tight enough the kids couldn’t pull them out?
I absolutely LOVE this idea and the uniformity of the all white books! But I see Gigi going nuts on them…
I’ve loved this faux log tutorial for years! But again I hate to think of taking the time and money to make them and then watching Gigi wreck them!
And how amazing is this pop of yellow?!
But even though these are all AMAZING, I still don’t really have a solution for MY fireplace. Gosh, it IS The ALISON Show right? HAHA. No but really, do you guys have any other fun solutions?
