Behind the Scenes: Custom Mantle

This week's look into the workshop features a custom hickory mantle. We're so pleased to share it with you, because it is stunning! It's constructed from reclaimed wood and is 100% a Revived Original. Measured specifically to fit above our client's fireplace, it will give the entire room elegance, drama, and timelessness.
