I finally got sick of my plain (minimalist??) living room wall and fireplace mantle, which is now anything but plain. It’s still a work-in-progress (I want a couple more pieces for the left side, but I’m holding out until those perfect pieces come to me). Added bonus—my kitten realizes that there’s not an inch of space up there for her and hasn’t even tried to jump up, so I can still light candles without fear of them being knocked over (phew). I’m also really happy to showcase two of my favorite pieces, which happen to have been made by my 10-year-old son—the 3D yarn sculpture and the pink and gold oil painting.
