Full Mantel Overhaul With Tile Front: After

Who: Dean A.
Where: Saratoga, CA

I like best the way that the mantel fits in with the rest of the Craftsman-style details of the house and matches the entry door exactly. The entire room, furnished with 1920s furniture and oil paintings on the walls, is very restful and pleasing. These details were all done by my daughter, who owns the home, including the choice and layout of the new tile surrounding the fireplace.

Who did the work: I did all the work myself.
Cost: $100
