progress on the fireplace has been made.
Before we laid a finger on it...
I may be the only person who actually admired the look of the fireplace.
But I knew what needed to be done if we were going to add our television.
Some progress but looking a little pathetic.
A little more progress!
and a few more pictures...
We need the top hole to be framed out with trim.
Then we need to give the fireplace a fresh coat of paint.
Despite needing to change the original look up,
we are thrilled to have a mantel upstairs!
Christmas shopping is complete, whew!
I hope you are all set, too!
wow, the 21st...
We're almost there, folks!
