{ Cottage Style Spring Fireplace Update }

Hey friends!!! Thanks for popping back on here with me for a little update etc.. So it's been super gross here in Michigan with slush, fog & mud galore...eek! You guys know your girl can handle the cold + snow with ease but not this gloomy stuff. Yesterday I started to feel a funk coming on, so I grabbed some paint, cleaning products & decluttered the house- AHHH it feels so wonderful!! So back to the painting part..I've been wanting to paint our new fireplace grate since after Christmas, but with the winter decor up & it still matched I thought I would wait. After decluttering & bringing spring into the upper level I decided it was timeee! I used the same paint as our doggy room which is called " Vanilla" by Valspar!  Anyways come take a peek below!!!!
Side Note: Sorry the pictures are a bit dark, but you get why.

Okay so I have to be a bit honest with you guys..This wood grate from HomeGoods has been painted 3 times in the last 24 hrs haha. It started out distressed grey from the store then warm cream, then distressed warm cream & now just white/cream. Sometimes when I'm painting/ doing a project I  go through trial/errors before the post is fully published. In all honesty this project each time it was painted only took about 15 minutes. I used a brush for the first coat then a sponge. I also should mention I left the other side grey & I'll explain later..

Spring is blooming in our living room & I couldn't be happier.

The mini greenhouse is from Ikea as well as the plants!

Some other changes will be happening in here too, but for now the bright airy spring decor is giving me a breath of fresh air. What do you guys think about this space? Have you decorated for spring at all?? Let me know down below!

Happy Thursday!
