My sister, My Hero!

My fireplace, original to the house, 5 1/2 inches Drywall, surrounding the tile.
I Hate it. It is useless. You cannot display anything on it at all, well nothing interesting anyways...I have been asking for a more traditional mantel and surround for eight of the nine years we have owned this house, but for some reason, it gets pushed to the back burner year after year...
Today, I tore off the trim, (with my handsome little helper!)

And My little sister came over to help me by running the big scary power tools. (I can use the little, less scary nailer gun.)Eight years ago, I bought this piece of dentil crown moulding, Now, it is finally getting used!
And this is where we stopped for the day. Notice, Darius did not clean up his tools either!
Tomorrow, we are going to my friends brothers funeral (December post) then coming back to work on it again,
Thank you Angie!!!
You are my HERO!!!
