Phase 1 of Fireplace Mantel

 

 

 

 

I started on the fireplace mantel tonight.

The old mantel seemed too small for the fireplace so when I revamped the area, that quickly went to the donation pile.

The wood was leftover from the coffee table I cut down months ago.

Right now they’re just being held by a couple lag bolts but will have a couple more before the end of the weekend. I will probably do a weathered wood look at the end (after stacking a few pieces to create the shelf). The final idea is still not finalized but it will look a little rustic. My goal is to use as much reclaimed wood as possible to give the mantel a unique look.
