, the mantle was the last to be put in. It was quite the process, 95 percent of it was done by the husband. I did pick out the color and help paint, but the brawn's and brains was all him. It was quite the project, but he did an amazing job. He learned so much during this project and found himself a new hobby. I'll save the process of it all for another post, for now here are some close up pictures.

Another thing we did (when I saw we, I really mean him) was change the window out for a bigger window. We had to replace it anyway, so we thought, what the heck, let's go bigger. What a difference it made to the lighting in the room. He also trimmed it out to match the bookcase.
Thanks for stopping by. Stay tuned for more detailed pictures of the process for a later post.
