    Customer Questions & Answers
    By Eugene from Creole, Louisiana on December 14, 2011
    Can this mantel be used on an outdoor fireplace?
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on December 15, 2011

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, no. While this mantel is made of solid pine, it is not treated to withstand the elements. It is designed to be used indoors only.

    By Paula from WA on January 25, 2017
    Would it be possible to cut this down to 36 inches?
    By Will M. on January 26, 2017

    Answer:
    While not recommended, this would certainly be possible by cutting the mantel in the center using a circular saw and fine-toothed plywood blade to shorten the length. This would likely require sanding and finishing/painting to conceal any seams as the unfinished option would leave this alteration quite noticeable as the wood grain would no longer be uniform.

    By Deborah from Mt. Sinai, NY on November 7, 2011
    I have a brick fireplace with built in corbels; bricks that protrude, ladder fashion, 3 sticking out with the top one protruding 6 1/2" on one side and 7" on the other. I am looking at the Shenandoah mantle shelf, which if I understand the chart correctly, will sit on these corbels protruding out 8". I'm thinking this would be a nice width out that overlaps just a little and still sit solidly on my brick corbels?
    By Collin C. - NFI Certified Master Hearth Profession on November 8, 2011

    Answer:
    I agree with you. This would definitely be able to sit on the existing brick corbels, assuming they are relatively level with one another.

    By carla moss from phila., PA on November 17, 2011
    I am looking for a 48 inch mantel shelf. Can they be order thru your company?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on November 17, 2011

    Answer:
    While we do not offer any mantel shelves by Pearl Mantels in a 48" size, we do carry a couple of shelves manufactured by Empire and Trotter. They can be seen below:

    What finish is picture number 4 of this Pearl 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantel?
    By eFireplaceStore on June 7, 2015

    Answer:
    Image 4 depicts the mantel in the Tuscany Distressed finish.

    By Joanna C Chestnut from Woodinville, WA 98072 on August 22, 2012
    What is the depth of this mantel? I need one that is 10" or 11" deep. Also, my fireplace is 68" in length. Will four inches on both sides look okay?

    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on August 22, 2012

    Answer:
    This mantel shelf has a depth of nine inches. The 72" version of this mantel shelf will give you two extra inches on each side of a 68" wide fireplace. This should be aesthetically acceptable.

    By Paul from Chicago on September 21, 2013
    Is it possible to get this mantel with a 4.5 inch thickness and 64 inches long?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 23, 2013

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, no. The manufacturer does not offer custom sizes at this time. The 72 inch width of the mantel would need to be purchased and cut down by a cabinetry maker or finish carpenter.

    By Scott from Park City, Utah on January 20, 2013
    I see the standard sizes listed. Can it be made in an 84" length?
    By Tyler M. - Fireplace Specialist on January 21, 2013

    Answer:
    This shelf is available in 24", 36", 48", 60" and 72" lengths. It cannot be custom made. We apologize for this inconvenience.

    By Kelly from Carpenter, SD on June 25, 2015
    Does the 72" version of this Pearl Mantel 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantel also weigh 33 pounds? We are putting stone up for a surround and was curious as to how to mount the mantel. Would we need a cleat? Is there a mounting board that the mantel fastens to and if so, how?

    By Will M. on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    This shelf comes with a wall cleat for installation. You would mount the cleat onto your stone wall and the shelf would then hang from it. If the stones are uneven, you will likely need to use shims when installing it so that it will project evenly from the stone. The 72" version weighs approximately 38 pounds.
    By Greg from Philadelphia, PA on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    We had the 60" at 33 lbs - So I would imagine the 72" would be closer to approx 40 lbs (33/60 = .55 lbs per inch, then .55 * 72 = 39.6 lbs). The mantel comes with a wedge strip which you mount directly to the wall. Using a stud finder, screw this wedge piece onto the wall at the height you want to hang the mantel. The Wedge hanging strip is designed to take the weight of the mantel and some, and as long as you screw it into the studs you'll be fine.

    As added security, I ran a bead of wood glue when I set the mantel piece on top of the hanging board. The result is a rock solid mantel piece and a bit more permanent than just setting the mantel on the hanging board (this is really up to you if you want to do this).

    As for accommodating the stone we were putting up:
    I choose to hang the mantel hanging board first at a height that would ultimately interfere with my stone spacing least. Even with planning ahead, I had to file the stones where they were rough and stuck out and cut the stone to accommodate the corbels to make sure I had a tight fit.

    Do a dry fit with the stone and mantel on the bottom side and then hit it with the glue once you get the fit right. Once you take care of the lower side, you're home free.

    The process including: handing the mantel, measuring for my cuts, cutting, filing, and then mortaring my stone up there around the mantel took about three and a half hours, but i'm a perfectionist... your mileage may vary.

    I've attached a diagram of the install procedure and a picture of my end result. Best of Luck!
    By Margaret from Victoria, Texas on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    Not sure about the weight. It is NOT heavy. Mine came with two corbels which I did not use. I had stone placed (built in) to hold the mantel. I love the mantel.
    By Scott from St. Louis, MO on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    We just bought and installed this same mantle in our new home a few months ago. To mount this product, it has a mounting receiver which you screw into the studs of your FP chase (I installed the durock substrate first). This receiver allows you then to simply glue (just used wood glue) and hang the mantle in place. that's it, very easy. We then installed our stone veneer around the mantle. Turned out great.
    By Joe from Elk City, OK. on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    Yes, there is about a 1" furring strip that is the lenght of the mantle for mounting. It has a wedge-shaped cut on one side that matches
    the inside of the mantle for mounting. The inside of the mantle piece is hollow, so you probably would not need cleats unless you plan to
    place alot of weight on the mantle after install. It is real easy to install.
    By Scott from Chicago area on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    I love my 72" Shenandoah Rustic Cherry Mantle. I did not use the corbels because I wanted a clean look. There is a cleat that comes with it and that's what I attached to my wall with just 2 screws in drywall using EZ anchors...with a little longer screws because you got to got thru the 3/4 " cleat before you get to the wall where the anchor is. You will need to pre drill holes in the cleat for the screws to go thru. The cleat does not have holes in it for mounting...wish it had. Then you just hang the mantle on the cleat.
    By Harold from Upper East Tennessee on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    I did not weigh the 72" mantel that I recently installed, but I would estimate that it does not weigh more than ~40 pounds (it is not a solid piece of wood, but rather a hollow box with glued joints). It comes with a mounting board that attaches to the fireplace or wall with anchor or masonry hardware (supplied by the customer). The top edge of the mounting board is mitred at 45 degrees, forming a lip which mates up with a matching angled edge on the back of the mantel. The included corbels attach to the bottom of the mantel if desired, but bear none of the load. When installed, the mantel fits snugly against the fireplace and seems quite secure.
    By Corey from Valencia on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    I have the 48" version. It comes with an approximately 40" hardwood mounting board that has a 45 degree edge. It marries with a board on the mantel that has the opposite angle. You mount the board on the wall then put the mantel on it. I surrounded the mantel with my stone facing to secure it from coming off.
    By Sean from Long Beach NY on June 26, 2015

    Answer:
    The mantel looks good and solid but is in fact hollow and light weight, making it easy to mount. It could not have been easier to attach the single wedge shaped length of wood to the wall. The whole shelf then sits onto this wedge with an oppositely shaped inner price of wood, making almost the whole length of the shelf supported and solid.
    By Bob B from North East Md. on June 27, 2015

    Answer:
    It's a very easy mount. Just fasten the mounting board to your wall then slip the mantel down over it. The mantel can be removed or adjusted side to side. The mantel is a very light constructed box that appears to be a solid block of wood.
    By Wes and Kathy from Fitchburg, Wisconsin on June 27, 2015

    Answer:
    There is a mounting board that comes with the mantel. However, you need to purchase your own hardware to hang it. It might be that weight but when we lifted it in place, it seems lighter. We mounted it to a drywall so not sure if cleats are needed in your case. We used anchors and screws.
    By timary from orange county, CA on June 28, 2015

    Answer:
    We purchased the 72" and 48" mantels and mitered one side to create an L shaped mantel. I did not do the work myself but my brother who installed it said it was very easy and all board, cleat etc was included. We did not use the corbels and placed above some stone surround. Not sure of weight (it seemed light) but it looks great and very sturdy. It really appears like a solid piece of wood.

    By Karen from Lewiville, TX on November 28, 2014
    Would this mantle work with my fireplace? My fireplace is small with a length of 58 inches and a depth of 5 1/2 inches. I really like this look but I am thinking the corbels will not fit. Can I just get the shelf? It would need to rest on top of the bricks.
    By Tyler M. on November 28, 2014

    Answer:
    As the width between the corbels will be 42" for the 72" mantel shelf, these will not fit around the outside of your opening. The mantel is shipped with the corbels not attached, so conceivably you could install only the shelf if you prefer.

    By Dan from Sxcottsdale, AZ on January 29, 2015
    What is the depth of this mantel's corbels? Can they be shortened to fit? Is the corbel one solid piece or a box?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 30, 2015

    Answer:
    Per the manufacturer, the depth of the corbel is 6 1/2 inches and is made of boxed pine boards. The corbel can be cut down for less depth if needed.

    By Anthony from Allison Park, PA on March 24, 2015
    What color is shown in image 6 of this Shenandoah mantel shelf? How does this shelf mount to existing fireplaces that are brick covered with plaster?
    By eFireplaceStore on March 25, 2015

    Answer:
    Image 6 depicts the espresso distressed finish. This unit mounts by use of a wall cleat. You will need to anchor the cleat through the plaster and to the brick facing behind. The shelf then hangs upon the cleat.

    By Paula from Roseville, CA on May 21, 2016
    How do I order one without corbels?
    By Will M. on May 23, 2016

    Answer:
    The shelf will arrive with corbels and cannot be ordered without them, however, you do not have to use the corbels.

    By Melody from Orlando,florida on April 3, 2012
    Do you have to use the corbels?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on April 4, 2012

    Answer:
    Per the manufacturer, the corbels for this shelf come unattached and you will not have to use them. These items are purely decorative and do not affect the stability of the shelf in any way.

    By Carlos from California on June 19, 2014
    Is this real wood? Do you sell over 72 inches, such as 81 inch?
    By eFireplaceStore on June 19, 2014

    Answer:
    This mantel shelf uses boxed construction, but does use solid pine cabinetry grade materials. Veneers are not used.

    The shelf is only available in up to a 72 inch width at this time.

    By Paula Inman from Baytown, TX on January 18, 2017
    I would like to purchase this mantel, but I want to make sure it will mount over the brick I currently have on my fireplace. If you look at the picture attached, you can see there is currently a brick mantel that was built with the fireplace. I am wanting to purchase the 48 in mantel. Can you tell me if the open back of this mantel will fit over the 6 1/2 in width and 6 1/2 in height and 35 in length of what I currently have?
    By Kevin E. on January 18, 2017

    Answer:
    That's a great idea for install. I checked the interior dimensions on this mantel and while the width and depth are good on your dimensions. The height will not work. The interior height of this mantel is only about 3" tall. For that matter, the overall height is only 5 1/2".
    By Will M. on January 18, 2017

    Answer:
    This will not attach to your existing hearth in this fashion as the mantel will have an opening on the back only large enough for the included wall cleat.

    By Pat from Wausau, WI on October 12, 2015
    I have a full height stacked stone wall planned at our fireplace. It will be 66" wide. What length of this Pearl Mantel 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantel shelf do you recommend?
    By Will M. on October 13, 2015

    Answer:
    The 72" mantel shelf would be appropriate for an opening width of this size.

    By Scott from TN on April 1, 2014
    What type of finish is shown in the picture?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on April 1, 2014

    By Barbara from Franklin, NC on September 1, 2013
    What is the needed clearance between a vent-less propane fireplace and this mantel?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on September 3, 2013

    Answer:
    The necessary clearance will depend entirely on the manufacturer of the fireplace or ventless log set. Each manufacturer will provide a clearance chart withing the owner's manual that will specify the allowable amount of mantel projection and the space required between the underside of the mantel and the fireplace opening.

    If you no longer have the literature for your fireplace, but do know the manufacturer name and model number, I will be happy to look into the requirements.

    By Carol from Thousand Oaks, CA on August 12, 2014
    If I order the mantel unfinished, will it need to be sanded prior to finishing or does it arrive ready to apply stain?
    By Brennan W. on August 12, 2014

    Answer:
    This unfinished mantel comes ready to be stained.
    By Mike from Memphis on August 14, 2014

    Answer:
    The unfinished mantel is ready for stain as soon as you open the box. But it is always a good idea to lightly sand first. Just a quick sanding...but it's up to you!
    By Jack from TX on August 15, 2014

    Answer:
    It is all ready to stain.
    By Gina from Reno, NV on August 16, 2014

    Answer:
    Ours was ready for staining - had it stained and it looks incredible - I love it! I don't have images at this point but I can if you are interested.

    By Jodi from NY on January 16, 2014

    The Shenandoah can indeed be purchased unfinished or finished.

    By Richard from NY on April 5, 2014
    Where are the instructions for mounting this mantel?

    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on April 7, 2014

    Answer:
    When viewing the product page for the mantel, there is a downloadable product manual at the bottom of the page, just below the shelf dimensions chart. The manual will cover how to properly measure and anchor the shelf bracket.

    By Bud from Knoxville, TN on May 22, 2013
    Can I use this mantel shelf on my screened-in porch that doesn't get wet?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on May 23, 2013

    Answer:
    Even in an enclosed porch application, we cannot recommend the use of this mantel, as the moisture in the outside air will eventually cause problems. It is made of solid pine and it is not treated to withstand the elements. We apologize for this inconvenience.

    By ka from jacksonville, fl on May 16, 2012
    What type of wood is used the build this shelf?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on May 16, 2012

    Answer:
    This manufacturer uses various Asian hardwoods to produce their products. The wood that is used is specifically selected to mimic the look and grain pattern of American white and red oak.

    By David from Tacoma, WA on October 17, 2014
    Can this mantel be trimmed to a certain length? I need something just a few inches smaller than 60".
    By eFireplaceStore on October 17, 2014

    Answer:
    Unfortunately, no. This mantel is manufactured using cabinetry construction techniques. As such, cutting the mantel would expose unfinished reinforcement blocks beneath the surface.

    By James Easson from Fenwick, Ontario, Canada on December 29, 2016
    Our fire is too hot to put a framed picture over it. I was wondering if a mirror might work, or just a decorative metal piece?
    By Owen on December 30, 2016

    Answer:
    If the unit is too hot to put a picture it is too hot for a mirror or anything combustible.

    By Mandy from MI on December 22, 2016
    Can you tell me which stain is used in pictures 4&5?

    By Meg from NY, NY on August 3, 2015
    Do I need to use the corbels with this Pearl Mantels 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantel shelf? Do they make this more secure?
    By Kevin E. on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    The corbels are completely optional. The mantel is perfectly secure when mounted strictly on the included wall cleat.
    By Scott from IN on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    It will be a bit more secure with the corbels, but I did not install them in my instance. The bracket that holds the mantel is very sturdy and runs almost the entire length. I would go without them as long as you are not planning to put a lot of weight on the mantel.
    By Sean from NY on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    You certainly don't need to use the corbels. We have purchased two of these at over 5 ft each and have used one with corbels and one without. All of the load baring is taken by the internal (hidden) beam that anchors on the wall. The better you anchor the beam, the more it will bare.

    Hope this helps.
    By Jae from MI on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    You do not need to use the corbels if you prefer the look without them.
    By John from CA on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    The corbels are there for looks only. You do not have to use them if you do not want to. They are not attached to the mantel when you receive it.
    By Jim from Salem, SC on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    While the mantel can be made secure without corbels, we think the corbels add increased security of the mantel. Our mantel and corbels were mounted and the rock facing was added to the wall that they were mounted on. Now, due to the lock in by the rock facing, the mantel is really secure.
    By Margaret from Victoria, TX on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    I did not use the supplied corbels. I have stone "corbels" built in to my fireplace for the mantel to sit on.
    By Dan from AZ on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    No, you don't need the corbels. I didn't use them either. The strength comes from the cleat attached to the mounting surface.
    By Jeanne from Phoenix, AZ on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    We added the corbels but only because the rock does not come all the way up to the mantel. The mantel itself was attached to the fireplace using hardware used for cement since our fireplace was solid brick. It is pretty secure without the corbels. So no, you do not need them to make it more secure. BTW - We absolutely LOVE the mantel! It is gorgeous!
    By Hal from TN on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    You do not need to install the corbels. They attach to the mantel, not the fireplace, and are purely decorative.
    By Joel from CA on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    You do not need to use the corbels. It is plenty sturdy without them, although it is a little more sturdy with them. We installed it first without, but decided we like the look with them better, and so reinstalled it with the corbels.
    By Lyudmyla from Fremont, CA on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    Corbels are making it more secure for sure, but we decided not use corbels since, without corbels, it goes better with the style of our house. We have about 10 lb of decoration on the shelf and It works ok, feels secure.
    By Terry from Boston, MA on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    No, you don't need the corbels. The unit actually is hung on a piece of wood inside. The corbels are only for looks.
    By Gabe from Chattanooga, TN on August 4, 2015

    Answer:
    You do not need them.They are for added decoration only.It gives you the option to use or not.
    By Bob from MD on August 5, 2015

    Answer:
    No, you don't have to use them. Yes, they would make the Mantel more secure.They are also very attractive.

    By Traci Ray from buffett580@yahoo.com on December 23, 2016
    Does the unfinished option have any distressing?

    By Scott from Waconia, MN on April 7, 2014
    I clicked on the different finishes and was shown another picture of a fireplace. What is color of that finish of the mantel over the fireplace? Are all the finishes that are shown available?

    By Brennan W. on April 8, 2014

    Answer:

    Our fireplace has some black and brown in it and I was thinking of going with the medium distressed oak but I'm not sure if it comes in that color. Is the medium distressed rustic and medium distressed oak the same color?
    By eFireplaceStore on January 5, 2015

    Answer:
    The medium oak and medium rustic distressed finishes are indeed very close to one another. The distressing is the same, with the only difference being that the medium rustic is slightly lighter in color.

    Can the corbles be a little wider or are they set at 42 in for the 72 in mantle?
    By Tyler M. - NFI Certified Specialist on February 12, 2014

    Answer:
    Yes, the width between the corbels will be 42" for the 72" mantel shelf. Unfortunately, we cannot do any modification to the mantel to change this measurement.

    What does the mantel cleat of this Pearl Mantels 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantel shelf look like?
    By Will M. on November 24, 2015

    Answer:
    The mantel cleat will look very similar to the drawing in the installation manual.

    By Bob from Raleigh, NC on January 15, 2013
    I am thinking of this to add to a stone fireplace. The stones are not at all even. Will this still be able to be mounted using the Cleats I see mentioned in other answers?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on January 15, 2013

    Answer:
    In order to mount the cleat for this shelf, you will likely need to use shims when installing it so that it will project evenly from the stone. When the shelf is mounted on the cleat, there will likely be some space between the shelf and the wall, but this is to be expected with uneven surfaces. The best thing that can be done is to test fit the cleat with different shims to ensure as close of a fit as possible.

    By Barb from ID on November 3, 2014
    Can this mantel shelf be purchased without the corbels?
    By Emily on November 4, 2014

    Answer:
    The 412 Shenandoah Fireplace Mantel Shelf is shipped with the corbels not attached. The shelf will have to secure to the existing bricks you have to secure it for use.

    By Susan from Tx on June 29, 2012
    Can this mantel be shorten in length about 6 to 8 inches?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on July 2, 2012

    Answer:
    This manufacturer does not offer the option for custom sizes at this time and this unit cannot be cut down, due to the way it is constructed.

    However, they have just introduced a 48" version of this shelf, which I can special order for you. Please let me know if this may be a viable option and I will be happy to check into this further for you.

    Yes, it is.
    By Jody from MA on August 4, 2014

    Answer:
    Yes, it is slightly distressed.. but not too much. Just enough and the color is perfect!
    By Jim from Chicago, IL on August 5, 2014

    Answer:
    Yes it does. I chose to stain the mantel myself, in a cabernet color, and it is stunning, particularly with the distressed areas. The hollow format of the mantel allowed me to mount an outlet inside and run power to it. Fantastic product.

    By eFireplaceStore on September 23, 2014

    By joe goldman from searcy, arkansas on August 6, 2012
    Is this a solid board? Do the supports have per-drilled holes to anchor to the brick. My brick on the fireplace runs from floor to ceiling and above.
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on August 7, 2012

    Answer:
    This product is a "boxed beam" and is constructed from multiple pieces of wood. As such, it is partially hollow on the inside. The corbels must be attached to the underside of the beam with fasteners. The entire assembly is then attached to the wall using the provided wall cleat. You will need to predrill holes into the masonry wall and insert anchors for the cleat to mount to.

    By Kenneth from NY on February 4, 2017
    Can I hang this on a brick fireplace?

    What finish is shown in the picture? Does the mantel come with hardware to mount to existing fireplace?

    By Kevin E. on October 28, 2011

    Answer:
    The mantel shown is our Medium Distressed Oak finish. This mantel is shipped with a wall cleat for attaching to your fireplace.

    By Steve from Azle, TX on November 30, 2015
    What does "box beam" mean? Is this Pearl Mantels 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantel shelf open in the back to insert it over current beams?
    By Will M. on December 1, 2015

    Answer:
    Boxed Beam is referring to the boxed pine boards that the mantel shelf is constructed of and there will be an opening to attach the mantel to your wall via the included wall cleat.

    By Ellen from Milford, CT on October 16, 2012
    We have a wood stove with triple pipe going up and out into the chimney. We have it about 2 1/2 - 3 feet from the wall, which is brick. Our neighbor, who is an interior decorator, suggested we put a mantel shelf up - which I would love.

    I have never seen a stove with a shelf. Is it a safety issue or something that is just not normally done?
    By Collin C. - NFI Master Hearth Professional on October 17, 2012

    Answer:
    There is usually not a specific issue with installing a mantel shelf above a stove, as long as proper clearances to the piping and the stove itself are maintained. It is indeed something that you rarely see, but can nevertheless provide a nice accent to the right setup.

    By Donna from California on November 5, 2011
    Can the shelf be mounted on a natural stone wall? I have a fireplace opening with no existing mantel. Will special mounting be needed, if it can be mounted on stone? I have a California ranch, built in the early 70's.
    By Kevin E. - Fireplace Specialist on November 7, 2011

    Answer:
    This shelf comes with a wall cleat for installation. You would mount the cleat onto your stone wall and the shelf would then hang from it. No mounting hardware is included.

    By Scott from Chicago, IL on August 8, 2015
    How do I tighten this Pearl Mantels 412 Shenandoah fireplace mantle against the wall? It's hanging down slightly.
    By Kevin E. on August 9, 2015

    Answer:
    Ensuring the mantel cleat is tight against the wall should serve to draw the mantel closer. This may prove difficult if the wall is covered with a brick or stone facade however. In a case such as that, some slight modification to the wall facade may be necessary.
    By Dan from AZ on August 9, 2015

    Answer:
    I predrilled three angled holes into the cleat that are 3 inches long. I then screwed them into the back topside of the mantel which is angled into the cleat.
    By Justin from WI on August 9, 2015

    Answer:
    I have the same issue, it droops a little bit. Just make sure that the corbels are tight.
    By Terry from Boston, MA on August 10, 2015

    Answer:
    If your wall is flat and you attached the board against the wall correctly, angled side up, try pressing the shelf down next to the wall with a rubber mallet. With the angle of the wall mount piece, it should become snug against the wall if it is sitting properly against the wall.

    By Ddavid L Hiestand from Bloomington, Indiana on December 4, 2016
    Can I have a shelf or mantel above a wall mount electric fireplace; the heater part is on the top of the fireplace?

    By Will M. on December 5, 2016

    Answer:
    In all likelihood, you should be able to install a mantel shelf above an electric fireplace, so long as the fan vents are front-facing and not pointed up towards the mantel. To confirm, we will need to know the make and model number of the electric fireplace in question, so that we may locate the clearance requirements.

    By mimma from newmarket on October 27, 2011
    What is the measurement between the corbels? width?

    By Kevin E. on October 28, 2011

    Answer:
    That measurement is up to you. The corbels are shipped unattached from the mantel shelf. You have the option to place them in any location beneath the shelf you choose. You may also leave them off.

    By Will M. on July 12, 2016

    I couldn't have been happier with my mantle purchase. The price was right, it came super fast, and it is absolutely beautiful. Wish I could have also purchased extra corbels for my matching bar, but it couldn't be done. The company did go out of their way to try and get them for me, but the people who make them wouldn't do it. They checked for me and got me an answer very quickly, which I really appreciated. This is a great company.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    While it looks big and substantial, it's actually fairly lightweight. It was easy to stain and install, though there is a flaw that the stain would not cover. The flaw is not part of the planned distress but rather it looks like a plastic type of filler was used on a nail head, also on the end joins and the stain will not cover, as the stain can not be absorbed. Otherwise, I'd have given it 5 stars.
    Pros:
    Lightweight Easy to install
    Cons:
    plastic filler

    First, let me start by saying I have been searching for the perfect mantel for months. I recently bought a new house and my fireplace needed a mantel. What I love about this store is that you get the option to either order it natural or already finished. I went with natural. I had ordered a mantel from another store and it just didn't have the pizazz I was looking for. I sent it back and continued my search. I found this mantel and loved the looks of it. I placed my order and instantly received a message saying they were working on my piece. My mantel took no longer than 5 days to come in. Nervously, I opened the box, which was packed very well. Oh my and the surprise that laid within this beautiful packaging was pure amazing. The mantel is clearly made well. The instructions were easy to follow. It took me under a hour to get the whole thing up. I absolutely love it. I get compliments all the time. I stained mine to match my existing wood colors in the house. It's perfect and exactly what I was looking for. I will be using these nice folks again.
    Pros:
    Looks fantastic and was well packaged for delivery
    Cons:
    None

    Love the mantel! Got the unfinished as I wanted to stain it the same colors as my floors.

    I would recommend this item to a friend.
    I bought the 60in mantle unfinished and found it stained easily, and looks great. The mounting was straightforward, and while it was a two person job in terms of one holding the mounting board to get it placed/leveled perfectly while the other person marks where the holes need to be drilled, etc, it gave us no trouble. It is hollow and attaches to a mounting board, some people may feel that is cheap, but I can't imagine trying to hang a solid mantle of that size, you'd need a crane :-) Also the "distressing" is quite obviously done by a machine, and up close looks too uniform, but once stained and hung is barely noticeable. It looks fantastic on our two story fireplace! efireplacestore also did the 110% price match for me from an online competitor, and it was very quick and easy.
    Pros:
    looks great stains well sturdy not solid, but easier to mount
    Cons:
    takes two people to mount (at least for the 60in <) factory "distressing" may look a little too uniform for some not solid

    Easy to mount. Very sturdy. Good color.
    Cons:
    A strange white dot on the side. This is not missing color. It seems like a sticker but I cannot peel it off. It is pea size.


    Unfinished mantle

    Very easy to install and I like the distressed look. We had trouble staining the unfinished mantle a consistent dark oak color. There are spots that came out shiny, while the majority of it had a nice matte finish. We still can't figure out why random spots were shiny. There are also odd streaks that wouldn't hold any stain, so some parts look like zebra stripes&#8230;even after 3 coats of stain. Some knots in the wood turned out orange/red color, while others absorbed the stain color perfectly. We used a good quality of stain so I have no clue why the wood was not cooperating. Thankfully, the zebra stripes and red knots are not on the front of the mantle, so one has to look on top of the mantle, or the sides, to see these staining defects. It was very easy for me to add more distressing to the wood.
    Pros:
    VERY easy to install. Manufacturer distressing looks nice&#8230;..easy to add more cuts/age spots. Light weight
    Cons:
    Wood was not consistent with staining: parts wouldn't hold stain, random shiny areas after staining and some knots turned out red/orange.

    The amount of distressing is perfect (not too much, not too little). The staining wasn't as easy as I'd hoped. Given that it is made of pine, it may have been better if I had used a pre-stain to help the stain be more uniform and apply smoother. The stain ended up being rather uneven in places and the wood seemed to soak it up quickly. I used 3 coats of Early American stain and a little dark walnut to make the lighter parts darker to get a more uniform color. I then covered with two coats of clear satin poly. Even though the staining took a little longer than I'd hoped and was a bit more involved than anticipated, I love the finished product. It looks like an old beam of barnwood which is what I was going for. I had it installed so can't comment on ease of installation. I am a little unsure how much weight it can handle. The mantel did come with a small chunk missing from the bottom corner. As it is on the bottom, rear corner, it's not a problem.
    Pros:
    Great value. Perfect amount of distressing.
    Cons:
    Staining wasn't as easy as hoped. May benefit from using a pre-stain.

    I was hesitant to order this mantle instead of getting a real solid wood mantle custom made, but I couldn't be happier with our decision. It doesn't have that cheesey, artificially-distressed look to it. It is very well made and the stain was exactly what I wanted. If you examine it it's obviously not a reclaimed beam from some century-old farm but once it is mounted it has that same feel.
    Pros:
    value; well-made; stain color
    Cons:
    small reflective emblem on side; not as rustic or authentic looking as some may want

    It has a distressed look? More like careless construction!
    By
    Dr. Kyle
    from United Stateson
    June 9, 2014
    So, I read many mixed reviews and several said that it was scratched and dented and not made well. I assumed that meant that they didn't see that the description said "Distressed" and figured they missed that. Wrong! I am surprised at how much I paid for this for the shoddy craftsmanship in construction. I could have made something of better quality myself. The distressed edges, like a beveled edge in places, was hastily done and many tool marks were left. The distressed look seemed a bit to intentional and not random, several parallel rows of dents. Also there was a hot pink circle on the side, that when sanded off turned white, like they used a piece of patch wood for a hole in the wood that didn't match up (see pic). The edges are not that great; they changed the direction of the grain on the ends so this makes the corners look unnatural. Also, the corbels have horribly mismatched grain so they are totally unusable (not a big factor for me as I was not going to use them anyway). I purchased the unfinished one so I'm not sure how the finished ones come in appearance. I had to sand starting at 60 grit to get rid of all of those tool marks and make the "distressed" features look more natural. I put a nice stain on it and several coats of poly and now it does look great. Interestingly enough, that spot of filler wood that was white is now pearlescent, like mother of pearl (won't take a stain). Sticks out big time, but it is kind of cool. I haven't finished my project yet, but hanging it will be straightforward enough. I will try to post more pictures when I'm done.
    Pros:
    Easy to hang, fast shipping
    Cons:
    Poor construction quality, need to put in a lot of work to make it look natural

    The photo didn&#8217;t do this mantel justice. Once our fireplace is finished being refaced with white Austin stone, it will look smashing with this new mantel.

    If you have an ugly fireplace, then this is the perfect solution for a transformation! It&#8217;s beautiful and it&#8217;s simple to install. The corbels add the finishing touch. Everyone loves it and I&#8217;m happy!
