It will only take a day

The next time my husband tells me something is going to take a day I am going to take it with a pinch of salt.

Several days later we have a fire and chunky mantle in like I wanted but  we need to wait until plaster has dried at side of fire so we can patch some more, sand then paint.

We had real trouble getting a piece of wood for mantle. The sawmills had nothing suitable so we ended up getting this piece from a boat builder and better still it only cost £10.

Its not as nice as an actual woodburner but it will serve its purpose for a few years.

Excuse the dark pictures I'm sitting enjoying the light from fire and candles,  cosy!!
