My best "before and after" yet? You be the judge!

This is my fireplace in my family room....but there's something missing...there's no mantel!  I wanted a mantel but couldn't afford to hire a carpenter and didn't really want to try myself and mess up the brick trying to drill holes etc.  So, I spent my Saturday night building a mantel without any nails!   See the results below.....


  1. Charming! You did a great job. Very cozy....

  2. That looks really nice. You sure are clever. And look at all that wood in your other picture, you are ready for the cold weather for sure.
