I spent a little time working on the ceiling and the mantle. I changed the ceiling to a popcorn style, which makes a lot more sense than the weird tiled thing I had before. It is hard to see at the glancing angle I have, which is unfortunate, I'll do a little research and see if there is anything I can do about that.
The mantle is going from weird black painted thing to a fine wood. Needs more love, but its already looking better. You can tell it's wood now. Up next: the stove and the lightmap seams on the armchair arms.
