  1. Nice mantel shelf

    Posted by Jeremy on Jan 11th 2023

    My fireplace was on a bare brick wall, and now looks much nicer with this shelf over it. I like the styling and the way it fits with my existing decor.

    The finish is beautiful. Like another customer mentioned on the standard size version, nutmeg stain on cherry does appear somewhat orange when you see it on a whole mantel next to a more muted brown. So it's not quite as close a color match for the wood around it in the room as I was expecting, but still looks pretty good. And it does perfectly match the sample piece; it's just easier to see the red tones when it's a big mantel shelf instead of a small sample swatch. From the maple swatch I still have around, nutmeg on maple might have been a slightly better match (with the cherry wood itself providing a lot of the red undertone), but maple was not available when I ordered.

    But aside from color matching with my particular room, the finish is superb, and it's a nice color. The mantel is well-built, and is hollow to avoid putting extra stress on the masonry screws with excess wait. It's a good option for someone looking to add or replace a mantel shelf.

  2. Custom mantle

    Posted by Armand Salanitri on Oct 3rd 2022

    I rarely write reviews for products I buy on line. I am making an exception for this mantle due to the fact it was sized exactly how I ordered. The quality is very good and the mounting could not have been easier. I looked on line for quite some time before ordering this mantle and I am glad that I did order this one. My wife is also happy with the mantle, and you know what they say, happy wife, happy life.

  3. Very impressed!

    Posted by Jim Dement on Aug 22nd 2022

    I just installed my custom length Darlington mantel and it looks great. I ordered it in unfinished oak and applied stain and polyurethane before installing. I found the ordering process to be straightforward and Gabbie was very helpful when I had questions.

  4. Quality product, SUPERIOR customer service!

    Posted by Patty N. on May 27th 2022

    I ordered the mantel in the 'primed' wood option. It was super well made! I've always had hardwoods in the past, so I was a bit concerned about the quality. When I received it, it was flawless! SO easy to paint the special color I wanted. And a HUGE shout-out to their customer service team! I was running out of time between when the mantel was due to be completed and when my contractor was coming. They worked so hard to ensure I got it in plenty of time! I didn't know that superior level of customer service still existed! THANK YOU! Last, but not least, the packaging was also impeccably done, and was even delivered on a small palette to ensure it was not damaged. Can't say enough about this team/company!

  8. Excellent workmanship

    Posted by Dan on Oct 11th 2014

    Very pleased. The quality of work and the end result for the mantle is outstanding...!

  9. Very satisfied with purchase

    Posted by Brent on Jul 29th 2014

    We decided up "upgrade" our mantel with a larger, more prominent set-up. We bought this mantle and then installed columns below the mantle surrounding the fireplace...worked like a charm. We now have a very prominent focal point to our living room. Loved the fact that we were able to custom size the mantel to fit our exact situation.
