(Me) "I need a mantel to put our Christmas stockings on..."
(Husband) "Well we don't have a fireplace so put them on the stair railing or something..."
(Me) "I know that, I was thinking you could just build me one.."
(Husband) silence, and a look of oh, no..here we go again...
One weekend, one call to my Dad for "assistance", and a few trips to Home Depot later....
"Alright I got the wood you wanted, now what?"
"Yes you heard right, a "fireplace", yep right there!"
I always forget to take more "during" photos...
The final product, and I LOVE IT!!! It was so much fun decorating for the holidays, and it really "warms" up the room (no pun intended)!
