Oh dear mantel shelf, you are finally up where you should be. Before putting it up, I gave it a once over with some 220 grit sandpaper and rubbed in pure tung oil.

For now, I’ve placed a few empty glass bottles with painted backyard branches on the mantel, but I’m thinking simple tall vases (like this, this or these) will work best for hiding the wires. Still brainstorming a components solution.

  2. Thanks, Soo. I want to host a BBQ or outdoor picnic sometime this summer to share our progress.

    Deerie likes looking down on our visitors while they sleep. Hehe.
