The fireplace will also needs to be painted.
See the big long patch work going down the entire wall? From there, and all the way to the other side of the door by the wall sconce , that whole wall is going to be taken down, which will reveal the upstairs. Oooh, I can't wait.
Now we just have to decide what color to paint it. I have a hard time deciding when there are so many choices. Any ideas?
