My mom wanted a wooden mantle. Her apartment has a brick mantle. So I went out to my garage to look around- I found some pine boards- 10" and 8" and put them together as sort of a half box- The end result is a "faux" wood mantle that slips over the brick mantle. Mom is happy with the end result.

Pattern or design used: My own design - Rob
