A long over due project in my parents house. For years this wall was in need of a remodel and my family and I finally decided on a design. The main idea was to update the wall to hang an LCD TV and provide shelving and lighting. Maple plywood was used for the mantle and the vertical pieces and Black Walnut was used for the trim. I used a dark stain along with a few coats of shellac buffed to a satin finish.
