Okay I have two problems and I would love some input. The first is... Now that I have taken down my holiday stuff. My bare fireplace is really making me crazy! Does anyone have any advise ?I don't even know where to start. Because we are living on the peanuts Chris is making we don't have much of a budget. If we did I would just hire someone who has taste but that is not an option right now. I have thought about maybe a clock or something and I have seen those cute bowls but I don't even know what you are supposed to put in them. That is as far as I have got I'm hopeless. Now on to the second thing.... Chris and I have talked about painting the walls in our front room. I'm not even sure what colors would look good on our walls with how light our fireplace is. So if any of you have an idea I would love the input.
