fire place mantels
Could we cover the current upper brick with sheet rock and just have the mantel be the top of the fireplace? Maybe the white wood might help tie the fireplace into the new bookcases?
We don't really like the stone surround, but we do like the rest of this look. Again, the stone does not continue above the mantel. Also, the white wood work might tie into the new bookshelves?
We like the simplicity of this look, but we are not sure if it would work with our house?
We like how the stone and the mantel work well together. Again, the stone does not go all the way to the ceiling. Is that a good idea, or a bad idea?
We like the white painted mantel here.
