Not Orb, the winner of the Kentucky Derby, though kudos are indeed due to that gorgeous horse, but ORB, aka, oil-rubbed bronze spray paint. Where would I be without it? A brassy and miserable place, my friends. Miserable.
Recall, the den started out heresville:
Add paint, add some accessories, and you end up around about hereseville:
Today I decided that instead of cleaning, laundering, or cooking for the week ahead – or, God forbid I start the motion I need to file tomorrow before 9 tonight – I’d spray paint that brass fireplace screen. The fireplace is wood burning, as you can see above, but I was told by a chimneysweep that it isn’t sealed properly, so it shouldn’t be used. Whoops. Goose and I really enjoyed this fire while it lasted. It’s on the list of things to fix, but until then, it gets a $5.99 treatment. Onward!
I couldn’t find my painter’s tape. I just used it when I was painting the hutch. Where did it go? I have no idea. Post it notes make a wonderful substitute! Hint, hint, 3M. This is not the world’s most perfect spray paint. But it doesn’t matter. This thing is not long for this world because I am hoping to ditch it for a gas insert in the next 12 months. And this was easy and nearly instant gratification. My favorite!
The lighting here is a little funky. My magical photo editing software that was on my old computer didn’t come preinstalled on this computer, so you are stuck with the photo as it looked through my phone’s camera. Blech! But you get the idea! Now that this thing is bronzed, it draws way less attention. Just as it should be.
