I finally got the chance to build the new mantel that I have wanted since we moved in this house. The old mantel wasn’t bad but it made the room feel dark and we really needed more storage. I felt like the room would feel small if I built full height built-ins so I got on Pinterest and found a few different examples that I liked. After combining the different things that I liked about each one, this is what I came up with. Thanks for looking.
