Mantel Mantel on the Wall

I love mantels as decorative elements--mantels without actual fireplaces, that is. Fireplaces are great too, but sometimes just a mantel adds a nice architectural element while providing shelf space to display some of your favorite things. They also make great headboards. I'm on the lookout for a mantel to go between two chairs in our living room. Right now we have a book case there. Maybe I'll check out Ohmega Salvage to see if I can find one there.

First mantel from Domino magazine, second one from Country Living and the third one from my grandma's house

I am also a huge fan of the mantel and am on the lookout for one for our bedroom! Jeff thinks I'm nuts. As usual :)
