We have a huge mantle and shelving unit built onto our fireplace that is almost %100 knotty pine. The shelves have very decorative cuts and there is an electrical outlet in the middle. I was wondering if we should get rid of this mantle. We don't like it and it clashes with our modern style but older people think it is very beautiful and would be a mistake to get rid of. We don't plan on living in this house for a very long time.
