Our home came with a 3 1/2 inch deep mantel. Yeah. Pretty lame. Wifey wanted one deeper, so I obliged. This is made from poplar (so that hooks will hold) and MDF baseboard and crown. I tore the old mantel off, built a box to mount the new 8 inch deep top, and trimmed out the box. Painted with Rodda trim paint (matches the builder spec so will match the trim perfectly). Used my little critter sprayer (the cloud maker).
Wifey likes it.
