I think it's great that you are letting her make her space HERS. That is hard for me to do sometimes with my dd's. They chose their own colors and decor, but I just cringe when they want to hang magazine photos and 'crap' on the walls. I still let them do it, but cringe when I go in their rooms.

The sharpie ink soaked into the sheetrock. It didn't sit on top of the paint. So magic eraser wouldn't work, at least not on flat paint. Unless they've changed sharpies lately. Anyway, that was my experience. Maybe it depends on what type of paint is on the walls.

I honestly have no idea what happened after we graduated I wonder if it was awful for her mom to paint over the sharpie.

That's really cool. I also like it with the doors back on, plus it's more energy efficient since old fireplaces cause nasty drafts and warm air gets sucked up chimneys. --we have a gas fireplace and have to keep the flu open because of the pilot light. It sucks air right out of the room, so our downstairs gets so cold.


It's great that you let her decorate as she likes. My mom wouldn't even let me hang a poster up in my room when I was a teen.



Mine wouldn't even let me pick my paint color. I was a tomboy with a PINK room. I HATE pink, and she knows that. She still painted my room pink after I picked out a light peach tub/toilet/sink --back when it was in vogue to have colored toilet fixtures. My mom is a huge control freak.

We have one very similar - also in a bedroom - and OP is correct. It is probably a coal fireplace.

If you look around OP you might find a small door in the basement that opens to allow ashes to be swept out. Our second floor coal fireplace has a grate in the bottom. As the coals turned to ash they fell down the brick lined chute for cleanup, via that door, from the basement below. This was pretty fancy for 1904

I love the idea of the chalkboard doodle area. I've always wanted a chalkboard wall. And doodling on a wall in sharpie? Totally want to do that!

The stencils in the before picture are atrocious and poorly executed. That would have been one of the first things to paint over. Totally inappropriate and extremely amateur for that fireplace if they wanted a heritage look. A traditional finish for that kind of fireplace does not automatically mean a woodgrain finish. Many places would have used cheap wood and used faux finish painting techniques to improve the look and perceived value of the wood and the finish.

I think it is great that you let your DD fix her room in a way she wanted. I let my boys pick colors and things they wanted for their rooms (within reason) and they loved it and appreciated it. We have had trees, clouds and birds on the walls, a floor painted with a black border and some colors I wouldn't pick but the boys loved it. It was worth it to me to give my boys that kind of freedom

I think it's great that you let your DD make her own creative space. My DD's room is how she likes it, not the colors I would have chosen, but we don't entertain in her room, it's her space. I can close the door if I don't want to look at it...and if she ever leaves home, I'll change it to something I like.

Plus it doesn't teach kids to honor and respect old things.


I think it is more important to teach kids to respect PEOPLE. So, for example, if someone posts a photo of a project they did that you do not care for, you say something nice or nothing at all. Many of these comments are so rude and not at all respectful.

I think is looks very fun and funky, something I would have loved as a teen.

Just FYI, painting over sharpie is no small task. One of my friends growing up was allowed to doodle in sharpie on the walls, and we all loved it, but when they went to sell the house, the primer did not cover it, so they re-rocked the walls. Seriously.


My teenage room has had wallpaper in it since I moved out - because of this very thing. My mom couldn't paint over it when we left.

There is now white board paint as well as chalkboard paint. A new way to doodle on walls!

My youngest sister painted all her walls black when she was a teenager. She also wrote all over them. My mom hated it but let her do it. I don't see anything wrong with letting kids enjoy their space.

I like the fireplace. Bet her friends will think it's cool.

I like the chalkboard paint idea. Teens are constantly changing their minds and now she can change it whenever she wants without redoing the whole thing.

Oh man. I kind of feel bad as a homeowner now! I wonder what ever happened, her room was HUGE. It was probably two times the size of what I would consider, even now, a "normal" size bedroom of like 10'X 12' or so. Her twin bed was just lost in the space.

I cannot imagine if they had to re-sheet the walls or wallpaper to be done with it. They still live in that house as far as I know.

I agree, chalkboard or white board paint would be the smart way to go now.

To be fair, *those* posts are less about paint and more about Penny.

I am not excusing or condoning them, but I understand their genesis.


Hopefully, the Peas that feel they must *carry on* for Penny's sake, will channel their considerable passion in more positive ways.

Still *hate* the OP?
Ignore her threads.
That would probably sting more than your words.

My posts were strictly meant about the fireplace. I didn't particpate in any of the other dog posts (I think it was).
This fireplace is clearly very ugly. It's a disjustice to the house, and the room. Just slapping another coat of paint in it, may not fix it, and shouldn't. Has anyone seen the show Rehab addict? Watch and learn.

Firstly, you could just say nothing. You're not compelled to say anything so it's not as if you're having to lie aout it.

Secondly, the word is injustice or disservice.

Really, Cindy? Really? I have trouble believing that you are teaching your children to say to their peers things like: "No, I really don't like your haircut. It's ugly" or "Those shoes are hideous."

If you are? Be prepared for lots of tears as they complain they have no friends and their peers find them mean.

It's probably better to go with the old "if you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all." Doesn't make them mice - makes them "nice."

I would have loved having a fireplace in my bedroom as a teenager! Glad you let you DD express herself with color. I think the chalkboard paint will be fun for your DD and friends to doodle on. Not so much a fan of the chalkboard brick lines...takes away the fun. I would definitely go the extra mile and spruce up the doors.

So to those of you that feel the need to be negative...did you ever hear the saying, "If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything.". You can give constructive criticism without being downright mean.

For sure. Some of you posters on this thread are disgusting. If you don't like it, how hard is it not to comment --or offer a kind/benign comment like "I hope you daughter likes it" or something?! And if your beef is with the poster, there are much more mature and less ugly ways to deal with it. Some days I am so proud to be a pea--like when I red the thread about Jordan, but other threads like this make me cringe.

Micki, I think it looks better now and definitely more fitting for a teen. I love that you let her decorate. I have fond memories of getting to do anything I wanted to my own room--sloppy painting, weird colors, badly hung wallpapers (it was the 80's) and I loved it! Decorating is now my favorite creative outlet and I think it was allowed to grow because my mom didn't stifle my creativity.

You know what I think? I think people are being cruel. However, I think that's social justice at work.

We don't like the way OP treats her pets. She is a horrible pet owner. Therefore, people are taking it upon themselves to shun her and treat her like crap.

Granted, the fireplace has nothing to do with the pets. But people are saying they still don't like the way she treats her animals, so they WILL NOT accept her here in any way.

Maybe feeling bad about the fireplace will give OP some indication of what her family has put those animals through.

But probably not. So carry on.

Cruelty to animals in any way is inexcusable. The way you treat those creatures who are vulnerable is indicative of how you treat mankind.

Yes, but how do you feel about the fireplace?

Now, do you know what is even more indicative of how you treat mankind?

I've already stated my opinion on the fireplace. I think when someone demonstrates cruelty to animals, she may have to deal with some flack about other topics she posts. While I may not agree with their delivery, I understand strong feelings towards a species unable to speak of their abuse. Clear enough?

I think it is more important to teach kids to respect PEOPLE. So, for example, if someone posts a photo of a project they did that you do not care for, you say something nice or nothing at all. Many of these comments are so rude and not at all respectful.


I think it's also important to teach kids to respect ANIMALS.

Obviously that is where all the negative comments are coming from.
It's hard for a lot of us to forget about those poor pets who had
no chance.

Good gravy. Leave it to the Ps to blow things OUT of proportion. A FRIEND IRL, at that moment. No, my dd's would not say their dress was hideous. BUT if they were out shopping with the friend, and she said, how does this look? yes, she would tell the truth.
Some of you Ps take things SOO far it's not even funny.
The OP isn't throwing a fit with the negative posts. Why are others? hmmmmm....

In this case, the OP has already bought the 'dress' and is wearing it.
