Did some work this weekend on a late 1800 early 1900s fire place mantle, top pics show it leaning was able to remove fallen dabris from behind it via removing the mirror and the by using lag screws move it back to the wall the screws will be covered with age appropriate molding to keep the historical feel.
Taking advantage of a Sunday to work on some remodeling projects at my own house. Installing some new fire place mantels that will be distressed. I’m constantly scanning hardware stores that might offer a tool or something I can use in a weird way for a different kind of distressing look. This is some kind of wood carving slash ice sculpting attachment that looks like a damn chainsaw blade. This thing is violent! It takes a lot to make me nervous with a power tool, I even cut the yard barefoot. This removes material fast!

•I not only had the pleasure of helping this client build this townhome, but I also helped her sell it so we could work on her next home together. •This master not only had space for a sitting area, but also his and hers closets! When doing a reno or building new, it’s important to work with someone who understands how to make the best use of space. We could all use an extra closet, am I right?!
•The tray ceiling is an easy and inexpensive detail made during framing that can add that extra height, whether it is for a statement chandelier or just an additional wow factor!

•The glass dining table creates a sight line for you to take in the whole space rather than getting stuck on a bulky table.

•The art work carefully placed in the two storey great room draws the eyes up to additional windows allowing the house to be flooded with natural light. •The floating fireplace with a granite surround brings in the sectional creating a cozy but luxurious space.
This weekend it’s inside house projects since it’s well over 100 out! Refinishing this shelf to be a new mantle on a gray washed rock fireplace. I think the dark blue gives it a more sophisticated look. Will post finished look when it’s all done. #design#mantel#dallas#lakehighlands
