The Mantle Has Taken Over

Thursday, January 13, 2011

Our lives, that is. Yes, it has been almost a whole week since we first began the mantle project of the century and it is STILL lacking the final 2 coats of paint. I will, however, show you a few sneak peeks:

Bryan put grout in between the tiles the other day. I think it looks GREAT!

Hooray for the first coat of paint!!

Ok, that's all your getting. I know, I know, you're excited to see how amazing it looks in the end :).

Bryan is at coaching camp until tomorrow night, so we will hopefully have the big reveal posted sometime on Saturday.

In other news, I'm going to Kappa's Alumni Night tonight for Pledgeweek! I'm super excited to see how they've been doing since I graduated. It should be fun! We also have our very first Lubbock Area Alumni Luncheon tomorrow which I think will be really successful, but as always, I'm getting a little nervous. So...prayers are appreciated--both for my event and for Bryan's safety at coaching camp. Thanks!


  1. Katy - I'm loving the fireplace project! I can't wait to see it in person!

    I am jealous of all of you tonight... it looks like I'll be working right through the wedding :(

    I also wish I could come to the lunch tomorrow, but again, I'm working! - No rest for the weary!

    Love you! And if by some chance I get off tonight, I'll see you then! :)

  2. Thank you Alli!! That means a lot coming from you since you're so crafty and creative!!

    And it was SO good to see you tonight!! I miss you and we NEED to hang out more often! Love you!

  3. The mantle is coming along great! I love the dresser you posted a couple days ago! It is soooo pretty! Thanks so much for stopping by my blog! :)
