The old fireplace mantel was painted white and was only across the top. I really need to update the mantel and I love secret storage, so I made the top open with European hinges.
It is great fun to show because no one ever suspects the top to open.

  • Great job, I too would like some plans for this, as I am wanting to refinish my Fireplace kind of like that. Thanks Glen
