Saturday Plans

Last Saturday we drove to a friend's beautiful, newly purchased, cabin in nearby state.
They hired us to build a mantle for the fireplace. (photographed with previous owners items)
I designed a mantle that would make the fireplace more of a focal point, something that would have a "wow" factor.
Hubby and I had a lot of fun! This was our first commissioned build and we couldn't have asked for better clients. We worked from early morning until late evening to get it done. It looks a bit odd right now, but imagine how stunning it will be with a huge black chunky framed mirror hanging in the middle surrounded by over-sized chunky candle holders or urns filled with beautiful red branches.

It looks good already and larger than life without the mirror. I can't wait to see what it looks like WITH the mirror.

My best, Lynn

You have the most wonderful ideas on this site! That mantle will be beautiful all decorated! I LOVE the brown bedspread. I've been looking for one similar to that one. If you read this comment and you find the time to share the secret I would love a hint on where to find one like that. My blog is private, but my email is blong2010@gmail.com. Thank you so much
