While many may scoff at (what I consider) my exciting news, my fellow DIY'ers might share in my excitement!!
Okay! I just found out I can (high temp) spray paint our enamel wood stove!!! WOO HOO!!!!
You can't see me now, but I'm doing a jig!!
I know... You're thinking, "That's what you consider exciting news??" Why yes indeedy, I sure do!!
You see years back when I picked out our wood stove for the keeping room, at the time I guess I thought "diarrhea brown" (Did I type that out loud? Sorry.) would be a complimentary color.
I swear, they must have had different lighting in the hearth store we purchased it from.
Anyway, I never had the nerve to tell me sweet hubs how much I strongly disliked the color. Especially after convincing him to spend more money on the enamel. He wanted black.
Well, I always thought it would be too big of a production to sandblast it and try to remove the enamel. From what I've read, it's impossible to do anyway.
BUT if I take the time, I can prime and spray paint it!
Heck, you all know I'm the queen of painting stuff!
I even tackled our little cast iron wood stove in the kitchen a few years back. Remember?
Since I'm an old school kind of a gal, I want the stove to be a traditional black. Shhh... My sweet hubs was right. Although if it were in the kitchen, I'd consider red. After all, red is my favorite color and wood stoves look awesome red!
That leaves me with what finish. I'm not one for high gloss paint. Personally, not only is it too contemporary for my taste, it also shows every single imperfection on the surface. Ack! But Since the wood stove is textured and decorative, it may have a nice formal look to it. But it's a hard sell.
A satin finish is what I used on the kitchen wood stove. Although it looks more like an eggshell than satin to me.
So whattayathink? High gloss or satin??!!!
I'm open to suggestions!
Well, now it's time for me to kick back for a bit and stop drooling on myself. I needed a filling taken care of so it was my turn to go to the dentist this morning. I'm still numb so I find myself talking like Bill Murray in Caddyshack.
But it didn't stop me from sucking on a piece of Dove milk chocolate... and if you tell my dentist, I'll deny it! ((hee hee))
Happy Wednesday, all!!
