Here is another little project of ours.


When we bought this house, the living room was very long and had two deep unusable spaces on each side of the fireplace. Not to mention a very ugly mantle...Now a space that used to be unused and mostly ignored became a dramatic focal point of the room. =)
This was the before shot of one side...
My huband's beginnings...
And PYOW!!!! What a BIG DIFFERENCE!! He even custom built the mantle for me. The copper on the walls is that sheeting that you use for a backsplash in most kitchens. We felt like it made a dramatic statement.
I pained the copper pieces of the mantle with a "hammered copper" textured paint and it came out great!!
