The mantel featured here is a brand new Beam and Brace design. Inspired by the Rocky Mountains and in the tradition of rustic beauty, we developed the Beam and Brace mantel to work with a cabin home and to have the feel of the ski resort just like the resorts that are just minutes away from our shop. Beam and Brace is made with Knotty Alder, one of my favorite materials to work with. Then we add distressing, glazing, and thick corner braces. Giving the mantel a look that is very rustic and chic. The color and glazing give this mantel a medium brown hue, rich with walnut tones. All are hand finished and distressed one at a time making each mantel very unique.
