Buffet makeover

I’ve finally done a project I am 100% pleased with. The family is not all in agreement but it doesn’t change my mind one teeny tiny bit.

It’s like when you find some gilded antlers at the store that you just LOVE and the friend you’re shopping with thinks you’ve lost your mind but you don’t care because you just know. Deep inside.

Ok, there’s one little thing I will change about my arrangement on top. The fan sits a bit too low. I think I’ll put it on a log slice like the one here.
