In testing some documentation, I needed to go through the steps of posting pictures on the various pages of LumberJocks.com… so I thought I’d work in a little teaser project while I was at it.
The house Dana and I have under contract has an awesome family room. It’s going to look even better once we get the hardwood flooring laid down… but man, will that mantel look weak at that point! I can’t really knock it – the current owner made it himself (he’s British, so he has an affinity for pine furniture, and he’s REALLY good at making it).
But it won’t work with our plans, at all, at all.
So out it goes.
Once we close, I’ll start taking some more accurate dimensions of the fireplace and work on some mantel design ideas.
The flooring is going to be Santos Mahogany, so… looks like I get to make a mantel out of the same! Poor me. :)
