'De- Mauve-ing' The Fireplace!

My old Limestone fireplace


One thing, that I have stuck on Hubby's to do list this weekend (before his precious little Saints play on Sunday) is to de-mauve our fireplace! I can't take it any more. I got really tired of de-mauveing (see Bye Bye Mauve) every nook and cranny and ran out of energy once I got to the fireplace. This morning, I was just thinking about our old limestone fireplace in Nashville and how I miss it!





I had to add this... I've always admired this pretty cozy room by Joe Minton! I wish had more time to add a few more fireplaces but I'm afraid I have to get back to work!

My old limestone fireplace - the wood I believe came from Sandy's Hackberry tree (see Loving Cowtan & Tout), and was just for show! As I always say, you can't have everything...my new mauve fireplace works! Next week - Sprucing Up the Dining Room, Thanksgiving Table Settings and Oyster Mosca! Later!

Hi Granny:

Very nice to hear from you! Can you believe some people paint limestone? I met one lady who had just renovated a English Tudor house & she told me it took her forever to get the paint off. Of course, the fireplace was the best part of the house! That was the nice thing about our 1930's cottage in Nashville our old limestone fireplace!
