This is how the fire place looked with the old mantel removed and before the walls were painted or the new tile was applied to the hearth.
The mantel is made of solid oak and oak plywood. the whole unit stands approximately 9' 6" tall.

Paint, new receptacles, and covers help finish the room.

A red mahogany stain was used with a lacquer top coat.
