My New Fireplace Mantle

OK, I've had it with trying to make the old barn door that I was so terribly excited over look presentable, so I had my friend make me a fireplace mantle out of old antique wood for my bedroom.
By the time I had it all painted I realized I hadn't taken before pictures.
Oh well, here it is almost all finished. I want to put a coat of wax all over it and maybe add a little more to the fireboard scene.

Audrey, I think it was meant to be a fireplace for you - that's why the door wasn't working. LOL
It looks awesome!
