I have to publicly thank my Uber-Talented Hubby for building a mantle for my fireplace. Two and 1/2 years ago when we moved into our house, I asked (so nicely) if we could get a mantle for our fireplace. My husband (the architect) only likes very simple design, modern, clean lines,........it must kill that man to be married to me. I love everything!! Victorian, classic, vintage, shabby chic, eclectic, some modern, etc. If it appeals to my senses then I like it. The fear that the thought of an embellished, over goobery fireplace mantle instilled in my man was very real and great. Finally, (out of desperation I am sure) he designed one that we both love. Simple elegance...I can so live with that. He finished it last night. THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU LOVEY!! Now the big dilemma; what to put on it??!!??
I wasn't able to grab a pic of it before he got the frame work up, but this gives you an idea.
Dilemma, Dilemma, Dilemma.............Help!!?
