Bedroom Fireplace-Part 4

The oval on the left is what I am going to put on the board on top of the fireplace.  I had to cut down the original oval on the right to fit the space.  I used the saw on the right to make cuts so I can break the pieces apart. 
The oval on the left is attached to scotch tape so I don't lose any of the parts.  I plan to glue the parts together and fill in the void spots with caulk.
The two little wallshelves on the far left will be put in the top and bottom area of the oval.  I have mud men to put on them.  The shelves are too tall for the space, so I am cutting off the bottom of the shelf.  It is REALLY hard.  If I use a bigger saw the resin will pop appart in the wrong place. 
Next process is paint the resin and gule to fireplace backing.  Then I will put up the electric tape, wallpaper and lastly the backing and fireplace.  It seems it never ends.

Bedroom Fireplace-Part3

Today I mixed the paints to match the fire place.  I am really good at matching colors.  It  helped to have the back of the fireplace to test colors on.

Here is the fireplace back painted to match the fireplace.  I found two pieces of molding to put on either side of the back and painted them to match.  Now if I could quit being SOOOO LAZY, I could get this room almost finished.  I think the next thing I am going to do is put the rattan mat on the ceiling-that is going to be difficult.
