I will start with the good ones!
This is the fireplace mantel for this year.
Simple mason jars with off white candles
Wreaths are my favorite and I added the gingham bow
The fireplace still needs to be completed with a rock front, and lots of beefy moulding!
Darrell really wants to incorporate an old elevator beam from the Hanna elevator..
The tall topiaries at the back are from the garden! I was walking out to the shop to get Darrell and when I passed them in the one flower bed I thought those would fill in the space perfectly on the fireplace! Just cleaned off a little dirt and wrapped some ribbon around them!
This is taken standing at the back door, and in the kitchen.
Now get ready for some BEFORE pics
Sorry for the even more terrible Before pictures,,,they were just taken with my iPad when
we first looked at the house. We removed the window and that is now where the fireplace is, the white door going out onto the deck got a make over by taking the middle section of the door out and replacing it with a garden door insert. We decided to have the family room on this side of the room rather than the dining room. New paint color is Grey Owl, and allll those tiles are gone!
We removed the closet doors and made a bookshelf instead.
You can see the bookshelf behind the Christmas tree.

Have a great day everyone!
Kitchen reveal is next...
