A Picture (for my mom mainly)

Here is a poorly exposed photo of my slowly improving wall. The panels are temporarily covering the niches until the cabinets are built, the mantle/surround are coming along. I told my mom I would take a photo after I tried the temporary panel solution.

That's a big compliment coming from your decorating self. This wall still has a long way to go...but I'm trying to be patient. The mantle still needs its little flip open doors installed over the openings, and the pieces that go between the trim and the top piece. I'm still going to change the green I think, to another green. Suggestions welcome! And I'm still not sold on staining the mantle and cabinetry, it may need to be white or something to go with the non country style of everything else I own. I fear it will take on a country look when stained...we're going to try it and then reassess.
