Since I don’t have a fireplace in my living room, I use my cubby shelves as a fantle.
When I added the crown moulding it gave it some substance, but any item that I placed on top was dwarfed by it. To solve this I cut a piece of drywall, wrapped it in white fabric and placed it on top of books, giving it a platform so items didn’t seem to sink to the bottom.
I took the pine stems from the tree next to my house, but I’m going to replace them with a different type of evergreen, they look a little too sparse.
We will be putting the tree up this weekend. I’ll be working on making a new tree skirt, so wish me luck :)
Happy Thanks Giving to my friends south of the border.
