gonna make this ledge and use it as a mantle over the fireplace. bottom layer: 2x4 with trim piece; middle layer: 4x4 with decorative moulding; top layer: crown moulding with solid top. stain, paint, distress. viola!! a LOT cheaper than the price that Pottery Barn is asking, methinks!!! :0]
Decorative Ledge | Pottery Barn maybe mixed with the rustic brown shelves?
