Updating marble fireplace
My advice is based on personal ‘hands-on’ experience and I am not a tradesperson nor an employee of a paint/hardware store – I’m just a crazy lil’ Ginger who likes to paint stuff!
You can use latex paint over oil primer without any worries. 3 coats of this product will give you a beautiful finish as it has a moderate amount of self-levelling properties which make for a smooth surface when applied with a 10-13mm nap roller. )Remember, paint takes 3 weeks to cure properly so be gentle.
Via My Repurposed Life A wood mantle is not necessarily a ‘good’ mantle.
If it’s outdated and doesn’t match your decor then it isn’t doing you any favours.
Some of them don’t even need grout as the tiles are set flush together.
No space = no grout = 1 less step for the not-so-handy homeowner! Menards pricing is considerably higher than what they sold it for here in Nanaimo, so do some shopping around to see if you can find better pricing.
