I think that painting the fireplace was the right move. I like the white, but that mouse just simply must have milk to go with that dang cookie....
Do you think now that the mantle is white, the brick looks wrong? I asked Lyle yesterday what he thought about painting the brick and he very quickly said he'd prefer I not.
But looking at the blues, I'm just not sure about the brick.
On Layla's Lettered Cottage, she painted brick with a pretty fantastic result.
But I'm no Layla by a long stretch.
So I remembered that we had some black construction paper and I made a little mock-up.
What do you think?
In the end, I want something that feels like this room.
Although I'll be the first to admit that I can't necessarily imagine
this little man sitting on that lovely couch.
Jumping off of it, maybe.
