my new to me FANTEL

What’s a FANTEL you ask?? a fake mantel!! of coarse. lol  Yes I live in an apartment no I don’t have a real fireplace.  I have told you all about my Apt Fireplace, which I love love love, but no it’s not a real fireplace.  Hence no mantel, which is why I’m showing you my new fake mantel.
Here’s the big before & after
I used to have a IKEA shelf (bought thrifted for $1) but now I know why others had gotten rid of them.  They start to slat over time…

So I had previously showed you this awesome shelf that was going to be my new fantel.  It started out looking like this…Not exactly my colors right?
and so it first went this awesome BLACK but I thought it needed something more…
Can you guess what I added?  If you’ve been following me? or know me, then I’m sure you can.
White of coarse!! hee hee {I can see my cousin rolling her eyes now lol}
did you see the preview on my instagram
Ta dah!!!
Yes I totally have old holes to fill.  Gotta add that to a list.
I’m totally freaking loving the new fantel. What do you think? do you love it??
