I updated my fireplace with green paint and brown glaze. I’ve used a glazing technique before with paint and/or stain on my shutter wall, my wall candle holder, a metal lamp and various other projects. However this time I used a glazing medium.
First I primed my fireplace with an oil primer. Then I painted it a wonderful green called “Bay Leaf” by Martha Stewart.
I loved the green however it was a bit too light for this project, so I went back to Home Depot and got a darker green called “Okra”, also by Martha.
You can see the difference between the two greens. Honestly the first one would have looked lovely, but I was influenced by the little ooo’s and ahhhs of my husband and and he had expected a darker color. So…..being the indecisive Libra that I am, I ran off to change to my mind.
