One step closer

No, we're still not finished. The beadboard has been done for several days, but we still have decisions to make.

We're leaning towards adding this mantle: http://www.pearlmantels.com/111gallery.html

Another decision that's holding us back, is whether to paint the brick or not. We've read about a few different ideas that appeal to us. One is sponging or spraying watered down paint until you achieve the desired lightness. The other is priming the entire brick area, adding either a light or dark color and then sponging on the opposite color to add interest. Maybe three colors total for more depth.

The question we're discussing now: would dark colors on light go better, or the opposite? {sigh}
