I’ve actually heard that marble is getting very trendy – it’s a pretty evergreen kind of material for people to use in their homes. But it’s interesting to see it incorporated in the mantel place in something other than the counter top. Makes me feel like I should go about embellishing some of my storage cabinets now… hmmm…

White oak is perfect for fireplaces. I have used it in one of my projects before but it was for a book storage cabinet. I finished if off with a dye stain too but it was of a lighter hue so it looked softer.
