When you are a stripper, people tell you that you can work magic with your hands. Especially when stripping off layers paint and caressing the curves on a piece of carved wood.
In this post, I will tackle the fourth floor fireplace and mantel.
Oh, I also the mantel did not come with a mirror in the center; it was purchased from Bernie's glass on Fulton Street in Bedford Stuyvesant.
After putting up the mantel, two of my friends noticed that fireplace was missing something, so we added a piece of pine, to complete the mantel.
