The Mantel

5:35 PM

In the ongoing, never-ending quest for perfection that is interior design, another find has been joyously made. And rather than having to go hunting myself, I was able to pluck this lovely piece from a house just down the street from mine: Zach & Anna's! In their own rearranging, Anna had no place for this antique mantel and sold it to me and Kyle. SCORE!

I can't tell you the thrill I get from seeing it elegantly frame our hearth. It adds to the modern/eclectic vibe going in my living room and seems to complete the fireplace. Haven't yet decided whether to leave it the existing color with built in age marks. I kind of like it. Just not sure yet.
