i like this one for a fake fireplace in the living room. not trying to make it look like something it isn't, and also gives more display space! Light my Fire: Mantles Galore - Remodelaholic Remodelaholic
This fireplace mantle diy with a floating wood beam is perfect! I had no idea it would be so easy to drill into brick and create a fireplace mantle diy project. Its perfectly rustic- totally fixer upper approved I think!
