Before and After... 02-19-2011

I headed out early yesterday to go get my Mya fix and while there my daughter asked me to do a little makeover for them...

this brick post was really nasty... peeling paint, crooked mortar and worst of all it is stuck in the middle of the room they are re-doing... Lisa used the room colour for a base coat...

they are going to build this into a bar area and wanted something interesting...

I used raw umber, burnt umber and raw sienna artist acrylic paints and a sea sponge...

the mortar was so bad that we had to use tape to form the lines...

the bottom half will be covered and trim will be added to the top...

still needs a little touch up on the mortar colour... they were thrilled with the outcome

this little munchkin didn't need any makeover, just lots of Gramma smooching... she is such a little character now, giggling and smiling up a storm, but do you think she would smile for the camera... nope...
she is up to 11.8lbs now... but she still is a little mite as you can see she is swimming in the bumbo chair... she loves to stand when held, I think I will take the jolly jumper next visit... another thing out of my house

she was getting a little tired of Gramma's kisses at this point... lol

Hope today is sunny warm day for you... Mother Nature is still torturing us here.

Have a great day and thanks for popping by...

Hugs, Deb

Awe, that little Mya is such a cutie pie. Love the pic of her in the bumbo chair. She looks so interested in what's going on.

That column looks amazing. The transformation is really something.

I bet Mya makes a great supervisor! The redo looks great, hope the sun is out today in your neck of the woods. We are having sun, but it sure is cold outside, tomorrow we are going to have a little snow.....let's hope that it is only a little!

That's the same treatment we used on my Son's painted fireplace. His is flagstone and we sponged grey on it to make it look like stone again. That brick looks awesome!
Love the mya pics. She is just adorable!
