BEFORE...
I can't have free time on my hands...when I do , this is what happens to my home...

After...
This fireplace mantel was in my bedroom...I move it from room to room every now and then...and like I said, I was bored yesterday and it made it's move into the living room. I like it...it actually gave the room more of an eclectic feel...as opposed to the picture on the top where my livingroom looks a little stuffy and staged...

Last Night...
Oh, it was nice...I light the candles put mini-me to bed and we just chilled...

I purchased this mantel for $50.00 bucks in my neighborhood junk shop...I was driving past, saw it outside, stopped the car and screamed out the window, "how much"?. The old man said, "Well, I'm leaving soon, give me $50.00"...I couldn't get it out of my wallet fast enough...He tied it on top of the car...I drove it to my mom's house..(it was closer than mine and I needed help to get it into my apartment building) my brother took on look at it and started humming the theme song from Sandford and Son...UGH! You gotta have vision...I love it...I'm glad it's back in the livingroom . It was getting no play in the bedroom...
