We have lived in our house for 9 years, and never had a mantle.
So when the hubs said I could get a mantle. I was so excited and he didn't have to tell me twice. 
I was on it that night.
So here is the before pic.
I looked on Pinterest to get some mantle ideas(I swear that thing is the death of me).
This what I cam up with. 
This is before the last piece had to be built and installed.
She is all taped of and ready to be painted and primed.
Not in that order, though!
It's is so pretty, almost to pretty to paint!!! not really..
If you know me I love to paint things.
White is my new favorite color.
 all primed....... This pic makes me dislike our TV even more. 
It's so GINORMOUS.... One day we will have a flat screen, until that day this will do!
Back to the Mantle!
Look at all the plastic and tape. Didn't want any over spray.
This is primed and painted. 
Can't wait to decorate it, and MERRY CHRISTMAS to me.
I know it took me a bit to post the pics.
 I love the way it turned out. No more bare empty wall.
 I love how tall it is. It 59 inches tall. 
That's sad that my eyebrows are the same height as the mantle.
You don't have to tell me... I already know I am short.
I love all the different dimensions of the mantle. 
 I love the boxiness of the bottom. 
The boxiness matches our new railing.
 I am so loving having a mantle, it only took 9 years to figure out what I wanted.
But it was worth the wait.
Our stinkin couch is in the way to take a picture of the whole mantle.
I was to lazy to move it..... Valentine Mantle decor is under Labels: Valentine.

  1. Heya outstanding website! Does running a blog like this require a massive
    amount work? I've virtually no expertise in computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyhow, should you have any recommendations or tips for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject but I just wanted to ask. Thanks a lot!
