Always a wall, never a mantel? Well, I think you just caught a DIY bouquet.
I flipped when I saw this Stacked Wood Fireplace Mantel by Small Notebook for a Simple Home. All you mantel-less dwellers, you must read on!
Inspired by an Anthropolgie store display, this mantel is a random assortment of 18 pieces of different colored wood with a chocolate linen center. The stacked boards are nailed together and then mounted to two long boards which are affixed to studs in the wall. Such a lovely architectural statement, that would transition easily though the seasons.

Thanks for the inspiration Doug & Rachel!
