We are trying to decide how high the mantel should be. I was thinking that as-is is a little too low and doesn't show off the nice tile on top, so I've tested out a few other heights.
Let me know what you think:
(#1 covers up the tile issue a bit more (since mostly the sides are seen))
3. One old book, one piece of wood and one tile higher (about 3")
The top of the mantel in #3 is about 4'6" from the ground (or close to that).
Can't wait to hear what you think!
