This mantel was distressed by hand to match the floors and stair treads of this home. It's scale fits the nearly 3-story fireplace and has enought weight to ground the space. A simple, affordable display of pillar candles is all this space needs.

When doing a stone wall with mantels/or shelves on it......which should you do first? - I am doing new construction, and I am hoping to do a stone wall similar to this. It will have a tv on it and hopefully some shelving on either side. Should I put the stone on the wall first, and then the shelves?
