Plaster Vent Makeover…

This story starts with this plaster vent cover which I have had for a while wanting to be made over. It started off as a funny yellow colour and I gave it a coat of white to cover the yellow.
The next part of the story….

is this!

This is how my kitchen fireplace mantel look before the weekend. I was inspired by Tina from Rubie’s Place after her mantel makeover to change mine. Well, that stayed this way for a few weeks until i got the bug again to change it.

This is how it looks today. I moved the clock to the centre of the mantel and added some of my blue and white collection to the mix.

Usually I have flowers sitting on top of the fire, but we have it back in use now it is getting cooler again.

On the other side I added my finial, stone ball…and the plaster vent cover – post makeover.

I added some neutral grey paint, wiped some off and went back over it with the white and blended it so it wasn’t so obvious. I really like the new mantel…for a little while =0)

I changed some other things around in the living room which I will show you tomorrow.

  • What’s life without a bit of change…it looks gorgeous. I have a stone ball just like that. Mine’s in the garden…may have to rethink now that I’ve seen yours inside (not that I have a mantle, but still!)

  • I like it a lot! I have trouble with my mantle for some reason. I never get it exactly right, Maybe i’ll change the whole thing.

    I love your deep fireplace box. Interesting to see the styles in other countries.

  • It is fatal: Things for outside look better inside and inversely 😉 Last I worked with portland (plats for the garden) and after finished I think: they would look great indoors 😉

    The fireplace and your decoration I like very well!

    Wonderful
