Wonderful job on this project. Did you also make the light fixture shown above? It works well with the mantel

Superb job! What really makes this mantel stand out is the fixture above. I’ve never seen that done and you have inspired me to redo mine!

Thanks Paul! Yes, I wanted a light above it but didn’t want a track light, so I though of this.

I appreciate the kinds words too all!
