Noel, Noel... DIY Holiday Mantel Art

It has taken me longer than expected to finish this little project. But that's what happens when you have two little kiddos that eat up about 98% of your time. (And then another 1% of my time is eaten up by trips to the restroom, thanks to carrying those little darlings for so long, so close together. Cheers!) Anywho. I am pretty much finished with everything I'm going to do to it for now. I have plans for some more distressing, leaving the N and L outside for a few weeks, but I will wait til after Christmas to do that.
 
So now onto the N. Yesterday, I told you how I sliced a 1x4 down to some 1x2s to make the L. I saved three of them to make the N. I used my miter saw to fudge what I would guess is a 60 or 65 degree angle on each end of one board. I say fudge because our miter saw only goes to 50 degrees, so I had to hold the board at my own angle and just tried to keep it as still as possible, and tried to get each cut to be as close to the same angle as possible. Here's the result.
