Candi called me late September and asked about refinishing her ceramic tile fireplace surround using Caromal Colours paints-
I would totally love to see a sample of what you think would work for painting the ceramic tile around my fireplace. (We discussed white and off white.) The tile doesn’t have a glossy sheen, it’s actually got a little texture already so I’m thinking the toner and/or glaze would pick up nicely. This same (horrible blue) tile is in my small bathroom and I would LOVE to paint that as well. I’ve attached a picture of the fireplace and the bathroom. (The cabinets in the bathroom were originally first on my to-do list. That’s what started this whole deal!) Hopefully I can get this all going soon and send you some before and after pictures. Thank you again and again for taking the time to speak with me and for sharing your wonderful art and ideas with us. You are truly a DIYer’s dream come true!! Sincerely, Candi
Isn’t she nice?) 🙂 Here’s the before
I sent her off a few samples – Caromal Colours textured basecoat Parchment, adding in a little Krylon Webbing (black) for effect, and the Caromal Toner.
In October I got this
THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all your help and advice. I wanted to let you know that I’ve finally finished the fireplace. As you can see in the before, it was a horrible blue color. After two coats of Parchment, some chiffon and black webbing spray, and toner, this is what I got. WE LOVE IT! And it didn’t cost the over $900 we were expecting when we decided to change the look. I can’t tell you how many projects I’ve added to my to do list now thanks to you and Caromal Colours. Now if you could figure out how to help me make the television with ESPN (always) on not be the focal point of our living room, live would be perfect!! This might take getting rid of the husband so I’ll just admire the fireplace for now! You’re a dream come true.
Thank you again…and I hope to be sending many more before and after photos.
This is why I love working with Caromal Colours products – they truly empower homeowners to do things they never could have imagined they’d do – and be so excited at the cool stuff they create, with their own efforts!
Now, the reveal
Cost – one jar of Caromal Colours Parchment $32.50, Toner $16.50, a can of Krylon Webbing $8, and some left over paint to water down (she used chifffon color). You’ll have product left over to use on other projects, and trust me, you’ll find places to use them!
After – room changer
Thank you Candi, for taking photos along the way, and allowing me to share them with others looking for ideas. Can’t wait to see more!
