I WANT TO MARRY IT

Meet my new mantel.And a little before picture: (I can never bear to put the "before" picture BEFORE the "after" picture. I'm just too excited to open the blog and see pretty.

The room is still in progress. I think I want to switch to the zebra rug now, that's up in my room. The colorful pillow is a tablecloth I planned on returning to Anthro, but now I think I'll have Brooke's mom who made Finn's bedding etc... make me some pillows for the couch out of it. (I know... how did I land her?) I can't stop staring at the mantel--- I'm in love with it. And I think it deserves better than the mismatched leftovers I've got on my couch right now.

Also-- can't wait to get to Homegoods and see what inexpensive knick knacks I can get for the top since I stole the orchid from the dining room... maybe I should just pull out the Halloween stuff a little early... cute.

Thank you Nate. You are amazing. And what was this, like a week from conception? I'm still pinching myself.

Okay, WOW!! That really looks incredible! The mantle itself is gorgeous, but the before and after pictures really made my jaw drop!! My husband just started wood working, so now I can't stop thinking about all of the things he can make for our home!
