my new to me FANTEL

What’s a FANTEL you ask?? a fake mantel!! of coarse. lol  Yes I live in an apartment no I don’t have a real fireplace.  I have told you all about my Apt Fireplace, which I love love love, but no it’s not a real fireplace.  Hence no mantel, which is why I’m showing you my new fake mantel.
Here’s the big before & after

I used to have a IKEA shelf (bought thrifted for $1) but now I know why others had gotten rid of them.  They start to slat over time…
