Heres an inexpensive way to update an ugly rock fireplace from the 2 colors of paint were used. Benjamin Moore Glacial Till and valspar Montpelier Ashlar Gray. I covered the lava rock and stones with 2 coats, but I didnt paint over the grout.
Snake's tongue aka mother in law's tongue, quite ugly, indestructible, nearly impossible to kill.hmmmmsounds like monster in laws i've had the pleasure of disowning :) it does look pretty funky though!
We love this colour combination this is Fired Earth paint in Tyrian Rose This is not my idea of traditional "dark and moody" room but it conveys a similar feeling and is a great compromise b/c it's not really all that dark!
