Fireplace Mantel Makeover Part 2

Sharing is caring!

My fireplace used to look like this:

Then I built a hearth which looked like this (in progress):

Now it looks like this (still not done though!)

The next step was to build the mantel.  This was actually the fun part!  The hearth was hard because there was so much time spent crawling around on the hard floor and squaring it up.  Which is hard when you are 8 months pregnant.

    Wow! That looks so great! Thanks very much for sharing as this is exactly what I’ll be doing next month! Timing! 🙂 I love the crown moulding! I cut scotia (cove) for the first time recently, and it nearly did my head in trying to match the cuts up correctly. Eventually discovered I had to place everything on the saw backwards and upside down! (I’ve kept samples with instructions written on them for next time! Nearly drove me nuts!).
    Thanks again, Heidi. Well done!
    Cheers, Liz (Australia).
