As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance. -- Calvin and Hobbes

Turn bleek to chic

This fireplace was ordinary. Her designer told her so.

She said she had all this beautiful decor and color. Then, there was the fireplace. The dreaded sore thumb of white enamel, protruding into the space, adding nothing, taking it with it the ability to soothe the nerve and relax the spirit, especially on a cool winter day. Nothing cohesive about it.

Also, she's British, and she loves her tea. She loves her chair by the fireplace. Something was definitely missing..

She asked me to fix it, so I suggested a fauxstone look, only with a fine furniture twist. The look on this double high mantle is achieved using Fauxstone pull-off, then finished with a fine wax, and polished.

Alas, she can have her tea and feel the old world as she cozies up to her new fireplace!

Things to Ponder

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches. -Andy Warhol

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
