mantel has landed.

unfinished and unhung

After many hours of online searching, I found this natural 5′ mantel shelf. Dig around and you can easily find 10% or 15% off coupon. I paid about $213 shipped. It is a gorgeous block of wood and hundreds (if not a thousand) less than other natural rustic wood mantels I found online. It is not as finished as the stock photo, but I prefer it as it arrived.

Of course, going to a salvage yard is probably the best way to go about it, but with two little ones at my feet, a salvage yard visit is not something I can do these days.

Now to put a warm stain on it and ask the talented Bakari to come mount it to the brick fireplace.

UPDATE: Mantel is going up on Tuesday, April 20th. Countdown has begun!
