Our fireplace mantle is complete but I may wait just a few more weeks for the final reveal. I am still pulling everything together! This mantle was already in wonderful shape it is just that the color was not quite right. Our wood floors are quite dark and the original finish would have looked somewhat light and a bit orange.
So with a darker finish and a bit of polishing up she turned out wonderful. We debated on her perfect spot and it came down to two different walls. Back and forth and rearranging just so she would be perfect. I am so happy we found her!
