We just built this house, and we have officially lived in it for about three months and we haven't touched a thing! Let me just add too, that doing NOTHING was really difficult for us...and I am itching to get at it again! (Okay, now that I think about it, we did change the dining room light.)
So, here we are and we're at it again. It's HAMMER time! (Okay, I promise, no more cheesy 80's music references.) We are going to rebuild our builder basic mantle.
So, here is what the mantle looked like when we were building the house and up until now! We thought it was okay...we just wanted something a little more substantial.
Here's "The Kid" cheesin' it up for everyone!
And here are the plans...(excuse my rough sketch, but that's how we visualize things before we build).
"Our $82 Fireplace Makeover - Revisited". Gorg, right? Well, ours didn't cost a little as $82, we actually spent about $175 for our wood, because we didn't use luan, we used solid pine select lumber.
Check her out...she is AMAZING!
