Above our mantel has been a bare spot for about 6 months now. Although this room was the first room to be "somewhat" finished,  I left the mantel bare. I still don't know what I want to do up there, but I knew I didn't want to spend any money on something that wasn't a "final" fix. So one afternoon K and I got to work. I had remembered seeing this image (below) and loving the "5" above the TV. Since there are 5 of us I thought why not. I had a 24" square piece of plywood so I painted and then K "distressed". FYI don't let a 6 year old get crazy with sandpaper...we almost didn't have a 5 left:)

It's not a forever fix but it works for now:)
