Well, you either love it or hate it!!!...I'm going to sand it more tomorrow...And I have been thinking about repainting my boxes, but now I love the colors next to the black, so I'm glad I didn't...I love my fireplaces and I have them on all year long...And did you notice????...I rearranged my table, but now I can't put my workman's bed in there....It won't fit...So I'm not sure if I'm going to leave it this way or put it back....UGH! Decisions!!!
