we are redoing the inside of a 1890's house.
due to budget, we put in a zero-clearance fireplace in the 12x14 living room.
we want to do a traditional wooden mantle.
we were thinking of dark marble to surround the fireplace, with wood around it, but the marble's too expensive ($1500).
any ideas for a nice, 'traditional' look that will be less expensive?
