This is my family room. As you can see the hubs fixed the table ...the mantel is done with the exception of wrought iron supports underneath...but my Dad built the whole thing and installed all the tile for the hearth and surrounding bits. The poem goes all the way around the living room and was stenciled and painted in about a month. This room used to have zig-zag wall paper from about mid-way up the wall to the ceiling with brownish wainscoating and hunter green chair rail...I so wish I took before pictures!! The window to the left also used to be a full size window but it made the fireplace look off set between the window and door so we put in a long skinny one instead and built up the wall between it and the fireplace. They covered the space on the outside when we replaced the siding.
