I’m starting to watch Fixer Upper. I know, where have I been??
The most popular show on HGTV. Totally a farmhouse style show. I haven’t been watching! 😕
In fact, I stopped watching HGTV altogether for the past 10 years.
I do follow Chip and Joanna on their website. Otherwise, I’ve been busy creating DIY projects.
Now that I’m watching, I hope they would approve of the change in furniture I’m making.
This piece was bought at a yard sale for $20 years ago. It was a buffet. This piece is the middle of the buffet. It had spindle legs. Several of the spindles were broken. I used the spindles to make candle holders and sold them. This piece was sitting where the pump organ desk is now sitting. The top was sitting on this piece. In this location under the window, the top isn’t going to work.
DIY Faux Mantel is going through changes
I moved the top to the scrap wood mantel.
It fit perfectly! So, let’s pretend we are Chip and Joanna.
Should it stay on top of the DIY faux mantel?
Does the everything need repainting?
Does the top piece repaint?
The bottom board on the top piece was added. Should I remove the board?
Should the chalkboard finally be erased? It’s been there for months.
Here’s a slide of projects for the DIY faux mantel…in case you missed any posts.
Thank you for your input and help! 😀
