This is part of a remodel I did on my in-laws house. The first pic is the finished product. The second is what we started with, then the tearout pic, then a couple of it all duded up for Chirstmas. The stockings are being filled so weren’t available for pictures. The bottome of the pillars are held on by 2 pins and after pulling those, the whole thing can be unscrewed. It took a bit to figure out how to do it, but in the end was worth it. I actually built it 2 years ago, but the pics with the presents are from today.

Check that, I guess the original date stamp is from 3 years ago

Beautiful job on the mantle. I agree that the wood look is much warmer and attractive. I’m sure Santa will enjoy coming down that chimney….Merry Christmas
