Firemantle built all the way up!

I wanted to make the mantle more then it was so I started by making my own boards out of mdf. I built right off the exsisting frame. Added crown molding and bead trim plus bed molding and base cap. First I built up partially cause I needed to rip down the old drop ceiling and build the crown molding around the whole room. Finally done. Best tip to cut sheets of mdf down to 2or3 inch is to use the battery ryobi saw with a Kreg sled or miles craft guide I don't think ryobi makes one!

  • What an astounding transformation! It's incredible that this is even the same space. The additional trim around the windows really ties it all together very well, too. Beautiful work!
