Mantel Restoration and Install

I had my eye on this mantel for a couple of years. It had been sitting outside an antique/junk shop in upstate New York.

 
On the right is the natural color of the stone and on the left what was left of the green marbleizing.
 
As in the upstairs apartment, we built out the existing flue, centered it on the room, and installed an absolute black hearth stone.
 
My marbleizing skills are not that good so I chose to stain the green part of the fireplace. I custom mixed some Minwax stains, testing them on the inside lip on the mantel.
 
A grate from a different antique store. It was scraped and painted flat black.
 

The finished product.
