Mantel with Built Ins

Mantel with Built Ins

The built in’s looked amazing but something was missing…..a mantel!  Don’t you agree?!  Look at how amazing it all looks now.  (A reminder picture of what it looked like before below).

Built In's Before Mantel

Why did I need a mantel?  Well, husband and I have traveled for Christmas the last 4 years we’ve been together.  The last 2 Christmas’ were the first 2 we’ve actually spent together if you can believe that.  Christmas this 2012 will be celebrated together at home.  I just couldn’t see having little babe experience her very first Christmas without stockings hung from the fireplace mantel;-) (Did I mention I’m a planner?  I think about this stuff in the middle of the night….don’t hate me because I brought up Christmas so soon after it just passed!).

Husband and I wanted a full mantel with border around the granite….but….come to find out everything about our fireplace area is catawampus.  Like so bad that the fireplace isn’t in the middle of the wall, and did I mention the walls on either side?!  They aren’t even straight.  So in a nutshell, some fancy piece was way out of the question.  We are working with a budget here people.  Husband purchased the mantel piece from….well….I don’t know where he purchased it.  I’d love to tell you that bit of info., but he can’t remember.  Sigh.
