I wanted to first of all thank you for your time and attention regarding our order for our mantel. It is absolutely beautiful. Even the contractors were blown away by how great it looks.
Can we seal it? We really just want to take care of this beautiful piece. (editor's reply: Yes...a siloxane sealer can be used.)
