Old - found at an antique shop (thanks to my SIL for spotting it!)
In the process of becoming new! I covered it with aquarium rocks (don't worry, I made sure Skittle, our fish, had plenty of rocks first!)
And here's what our mantle looks like right now, it still need a little something (just not sure what that is yet) but it looks much better than it did. And now you can see my finished paper roll project and the finished 'E'. I haven't decided if I'm going to leave the 'E' sitting there, or if I'm going to hang it. Any thoughts? Hopefully tomorrow I'll post some more pictures of some others things we've been working on around the house!
