On a spring trip to Cape Cod, I found this old mantle in an antique barn and purchased it for only $15.00. After a coat of the same paint I used on the ceiling beams, it worked perfectly to update, and soften, our fireplace.
Sometimes the simplest changes can make a big difference.
The trim got a coat of paint too...
The Minwax Dark Walnut, that old standby stain of the 1970's, is almost gone!
I think I'm on a roll...next it's on to the dining room!
