The decorative 4-Foot Mantel Wall Shelf Plans resembles a fire place mantel and makes a beautiful place to display photos and other decorations. The project can be built with a miter saw and table saw in 2-3 hours. A keyhole router bit can be used in lieu of mounting hardware. I also suggest a pneumatic air compressor and 18 and 16 gauge nail guns.
The overall project dimensions are 48 inches long by 8 inches tall. It looks beautiful with a glaze or distressed finish.

This is beautiful!
We actually built this one to give to my mom for Christmas last year. It looks great in her living room and we put family pictures on it. It's one of my favorite shelves because it looks so classy.
What type of brown glaze did you use and where did you get it? Looks really nice!
I bought a clear glaze at my local hardware store. I had them tint it to a really dark chocolate brown color. It turned out perfect, just what I had imagined!
