The fireplace looks much better than the red brick. I like it a lot(if you could have heard me say that pretend that it sounded like dumb and dumber). Heehee!!
I am sorry you haven't had the baby yet. Did you go early with the other three? Oh I wanted to say that horaaah you made it, because I remember that you wanted to have four kids before you were 30, so congrats!!!:-)
When you come to IF again I have some projects that well I need your help with, so make sure you call me. :)

Beautiful fireplace! You've been a busy lady. Hasn't anyone told you to relax when you're pregnant? You're making the rest of us lazy's look bad. :) And, holy cow, you find the best things at D.I. I'm seriously jealous, and that's sad that I'm jealous of your D.I., but we don't have much to work with here, or I haven't tried hard enough.

Oh I LOVE the fireplace, it looks lovely! I can't wait to see the dresser, it reminds me of the one I did for Parkers room. I am also painting a dresser, nightstand, old window and pretty much everything I can get my hands on. :) I will post pics soon. Instead of having food cravings while pregnant, I am having refinish furniture cravings!
I hope your little one comes soon, go jump on a trampoline or drink castro oil w/ OJ (is that what is is called) my neighbor just did that and it worked. I have never heard of that, but hey it worked.

Kristin said...

Okay I miss typed on my last comment, CASTROL OIL, sorry.
