When I built the fireplace in our room (Watch the video HERE), I knew we would need a mantel. After looking at options, I decided to make my own! Using whitewood (super cheap wood) and great staining technique, I was able to make my own. We love how it turned out and it being super easy and expensive makes it even better. I’ve got a YouTube video up on my channel detailing the build and you can also purchase plans HERE if that helps you. Thanks for watching and scroll down for more!
