Dibs on the Fireplace!!!

I didn't think that the fireplace would  be in such demand. 

Spike called dibs for a doggy bed. I did find out that a dibs were playing pieces, long ago, in a children's game related to jacks... other than that, it is just a verb indicating that you are claiming ownership of something... How boring is that?

Tessie wants it for her books and a selfie portrait in the center section...Yup.  That's exactly the word she used...  Too much internet...

Zar wants it to remain a part of the observatory and all stodgy...

Wait a second.  I have to go consult with Daisy and find out what should really go in there... I am sure it is NOT a portrait of Tessie!

I haven't installed it yet.  I have to fix the wall behind the left hand side.  There is a slight crack there at present... That will have to be filled in, before the unit is glued in place.
I also still have to do a bit of touch up on the stain and a final finish must be done.

I don't think that I am going to get anything done on the HBS Forest Cottage today. 

I need to settle in and finish the observatory, so that I can really start working on the Forest Cottage...

Stand back!  Here I go!

See you tomorrow.

What a Great Transformation of the Fireplace! The surrounding shelves look wonderful and as if they have always been partnered with it!

Hello Casey,
You put so much hard work into it, I think you should put a selfie of yourself over the fireplace!
Big hug,
