Are there things in your home that you would like to update, but don’t want to deal with the hassle and expense of “replacing” them? A colleague of mine posted this article on her Facebook page recently, and I thought it was a brilliant idea!
A designer name Patti Houston who wrote a blog post for Flüff (a furniture rental and home staging company located in Vancouver, Canada) explains how to transform accent pieces on a fireplace from a dated brass to a sleek and neutral black color. All you need is three supplies (TSP, steel wool, and a high-heat matte black paint) that cost around a total of $25, and it only takes about 20 minutes! Read Patti’s blog post for step-by-step directions… Pretty cool!
