Family Room Update and Mantel Business

When we first saw our house this is what the family room looked like:


Then we moved in and it looked like this...

And now this:




Let us take a closer look at that mantel shall we?



This must be fixed. Let's see what kind of DIY project I can put together to continue the improvement progression of our sweet little family room. Any mantel advice? Direction? I have some awesome wooden pictures frames I'm flirting with as well as a foam wreath I'm itching to incorporate into something.

  2. Or you could try this for the foam wreath. I'm in the process of making one myself. http://www.bystephanielynn.com/2010/11/diy-faux-curled-rosewood-wreath-made.html
