Mantel Makeover

We took our circa 1993 builders grade fireplace and replaced it with a custom built new mantel using the existing framework. It is an easy way to upgrade the look of your fireplace without all the extra expense, a great way to bring new life into your living room. (In the pictures below you will also notice we replaced the tile, for more details on how to do this you can visit to see this project in full.
