So they picked my bedroom as the Pick of the Week on the IKEA Share Space blog!

I'm kind of excited :)

Still think I want to paint the dresser drawer fronts white though....

I was hoping to have posted the finished fireplace by now. Only, it's not finished yet. Boo. Hubby got frustrated with the trim and hasn't attempted to do it again yet. Once that's done, I can do a couple coats of paint and voila!

Here's a blurry photo I snapped with my phone of it primed with painter's tape to indicate where the detail trim is going to go. I think it's gonna be pretty awesome when it's finished. You can see the new travertine tile too. Love it.

In the meantime, I've started painting the trim Ultra White in satin (Olympic Premium brand). I've gotten three and a half doors done so far and the difference is AMAZING. My lovely grey walls suddenly look a million times more awesome. I don't know why I waited so long. Oh that's right, because it's tedious and takes forever. And we only have 16 doors in the house, plus all the trim....

Here's a shot of the pantry so you can see the difference between the white and the yellow:
I painted the front of the pantry door and the trim, but since we have that storage rack on the back I haven't gotten to that side yet. I'm not exactly looking forward to taking that beast down and then reinstalling it.
