Mantel progress!

A few weeks ago, I posted about the state of my family room mantel, here.

Today, I want to show you the finished mantel installation.

My wonderful carpenter and his crew did a beautiful job installing the hand-carved panels.

There is a little touch up work to be done on the mantel’s wood finish,
which will happen after the holidays.
I am very pleased. It really gives some needed ornamentation to the fireplace.

They are handmade, and have such dear little faces and details.

They stand over two feet high!

I have a few more finishing decorating touches, so I’ll update on those later.

Readers, is anything hanging you up with your decorations, or are you finished? 

I would love to see and share your mantel masterpieces!
