I dreamed about this mantel design for 4 years and love how it turned out!  More details can be found on Shining on Design blog. ........................

Here is the BEFORE. I wanted to brighten it up and really make it a statement piece.

Painting the brick was the first step. It already looks so much better, but I wanted something more interesting.

I reached out to my favorite woodworker in the Chicago area and we got to work!
