Sheesh. Went to Lowes and bought the following:
1 gallon interior 'granite' paint for fireplace wall.
1 pack gold sort of glitter for fireplace paint
1 quart pale yellow outdooor paint for touchups
2 eight foot wooden whatchamacalllit strips to frame fireplace area
2 mediocre paint brushes
1 shower curtain liner to replace mildewed liner
One Hundred Six Dollars!
I thought it might amount to fifty dollars, tops but I guess my brain was on standby.
