This was our mantel last Christmas.
What would you do if you woke up on a
Saturday morning and your husband says,
"I feel like building something,
do you have a project for me"?
What I did was...
I got that man in the pick-up and headed
to Home Depot, before he changed his mind.
This was our mantel when we bought the house.
The first thing that I did was get rid of those
1970 dome light shades and replaced them,
but that was about all that I could do,
Our home was built in 1905,
but one of the owners was a mason and he built
this fireplace in the 60's or 70's.
I think that it is beautiful,
but it doesn't look like it belongs
in a 1905 cottage.
So . . .
now it has a new look.
The white ties in nicely with our
white woodwork and molding.
I think it works very well in
transporting us back in time from the 1970's,
back to 1905 (or at least to a cottage feel).
If you wake up next Saturday
and your husband wants a project,
what will you ask for?
Whatever you do, don't pass up
an opportunity like this . . .
they don't come around everyday, LOL.
Please forgive me for all of my early Christmas posts . . .
I'm not forgetting
How can I, when I have so very much
to be thankful for.
God Bless You All
