I moved into my home a little over 4 years ago with my wife, just a few months before my daughter, and 1st child was born. Our home was in decent move in condition but it did need some painting and some updates. One thing I have always wanted and never had the opportunity to enjoy, was a fireplace and my home has one. It was very plain, with some flat black slate surrounding it, and it didn't have a mantle. So for the past 4 years with prioritizing all of our time with our first child, I didn't have the time to build the mantle and place my flat screen above it until this past month. I have had many compliments about it in just a few weeks since I built it, so I thought I would send in a couple photos as I was building it and a finished one as well. Thank you for your time and Happy New Year!
