The Fireplace Saga Continues… aka Built ins

I dont know what I was thinking. Actually, I do know what I was thinking but I didnt expect the labor of love to be this intense! I started out just chipping away a layer of latex over oil paint as it was peeling, and then I just couldnt stop! The top layer came off easily but the bottom paint, definitely lead, needed to be (wet) and safely disposed of. Anyway- I am glad we have not moved in yet so we can totally dispose of any paint pieces and ensure we are not breathing this stuff in. Under this white paint and tile capsule, we have beautiful bones to work with 🙂
