This has been a loooonggg time coming! The overmantel I made a while back but I just recently added a heavy top (plaster or resin or whatever that stuff is) and the bottom is very old. It was a dull grey and I added wood to it on the back & sides and some trim bits and painted that puppy all white to go with the overmantel. I JUST LOVE IT! It makes Slothaven's dinging room come alive for me.
I also refinished 9 really cheap chairs, you can see them scattered about. There is a Chrynsbon china cabinet the doors of which I am giving new "glass" (plastic) so it's not in there.
And this room is all about the blue and white china. There is still more to come, crown moulding, a picture rail and door knobs....
The second picture shows the fireplace better.
