A close-up of my farmhouse style mantel

May 23, 2016

Have you heard?.....  
I completed my fireplace makeover!  It's all finished and ready for you see! 
                                            Today I'm sharing a close-up of the mantel.

As you can see the entire fireplace had a dark stain     

Now it is light and bright with a new planked wall and raw wood mantel.

I used cotton stem branches purchased at Decor Steals to decorate the mantel.
  You can shop here for the branches

The pink flowers are from my yard.
The plank wall was a DIY collaboration between my husband and me.  
The details are all here

I spent a lot of time sanding the mantel to get to the natural wood.
 I love the results!  
 If you ask me... Was it worth the dust and sore muscles?  I say yes for sure!!
