Hello wild ones! I’m back at work tonight, bleh, but I got the mantle dropped off yesterday to a happy client, so at least we have a blog entry that has nothing to do with my obsession with books or reading.
This is what we started with. A fake/space heater mantle built from pallet wood and plywood.
First the entire thing got 2 good coats of red paint.
Once that was done all I had to do was distress and apply my sealant . I took the easy way and just went balls to the walls with my electric sander rather than trying to do the entire thing by hand.
