When Crafty, Scrappy, Happy moved into her house, it had a fireplace, but no mantle. She took an old cabinet and created a beautiful mantle!!! Looking at this photo, would you have guessed that? Not me! This is also a great idea for people who don't have a fireplace, but want the look of one. (You've got to check out some of the other projects in this blog. Plan an few minutes to look around.)
See the mantle made from a cabinet.
