This 72-inch Homestead mantel shelf is a beautiful transitional design that features elegant cove moulding. The ample ten inch shelf depth allows plenty of display room. Hand crafted from Asian hardwoods and veneers that take paint and stain beautifully. Mitred hanger board assembly included for easy installation. Look for the pearl inlay that graces the right-hand side of the shelf as proof that you have received an authentic Pearl Mantel. Your inlay is masked so that you may easily paint or stain around it. Simply remove the mask when done. Light sanding and filling is recommended before paint or stain is applied.
