Happy International Women's Day (and happy birthday to my sister)!
Today was absolutely gorgeous in upstate NY. We had some overcast skies but the temperature was perfect and it smelled all earthy and springlike outside.
I added the mortar to the chimney, which made it look like this:
Then I painted over the mortar to give it that stucco effect. Here's what it looks like now. The paint isn't completely dry in the picture below, so it's a little shiny.
Excuse my messy craft table. :)
Anyway, I am now going to touch up the paint in the living room so I can start decorating. :)
