Rustic Mantle Installed

A large reclaimed cedar beam with blackened hardware was installed today. This piece from a barn beam is worn, has saw marks, chain hits and everything else that shows it worked hard holding up the structure. Now it gets to relax above the fireplace held in by Shelfology brackets and turnbuckles. The turnbuckles do help hold the beam in place, as well as add to the vintage look of the piece.
