For me, the mantle was necessary to top up the bookshelves I purchased in order to add storage space.
The color was matching perfectly, and it was easy to install.

I needed this bookcase top to match the other one. It matched perfectly. I went to a lot of websites before I found it and I am happy that the local Home Depot could order it for store pick up and save me shipping charges.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by LindasHusband Fits perfectly on top of related shelf unit. Looks good.
This is simply a nicely finished top for the related shelf unit. Four holes for the dowels on the top of the shelf unit to fit into. Fit perfectly. Make sure you get this top when you get the shelf unit, as it keeps the shelf unit from closing and strengthens it. We bought two shelf units and one of the mantels. Went together without a hitch!

I have bought 6 of these mantel tops over the last 10 years, all in the oak finish. They really give the bookcase a finished look. I think it also makes the stacked bookcases a little more steady and gives me another shelf to put things on.
The only thing I've noticed is that the mantels I ordered 10 years ago look almost like a solid piece of wood. On the most recent one I can see where a couple small pieces of wood were spliced together to make the mantel. Since my mantels are on top of two stacked bookcases, no one will ever inspect them up close so it's not an issue for me. I assume that this would not show at all on the painted ones.

I just purchased ANOTHER mantel top for my green shelf units that I originally purchased a few years ago. I was using the 2 units stacked, so I originally only bought 1 mantel top. Now I wanted the option to put my shelves side-by-side, but that would require 2 mantel tops. I was VERY PLEASED that they still had the SAME GREEN color that I originally ordered. I was very afraid they might have discontinued it, or changed the shade of green, but everything was A-OK! :)
These have been good sturdy shelves for us. We use them for books. They are EXTRA-SUPER because there is NO assembly & they can easily be transported/moved because they just fold up & go with you. VERY CONVENIENT.
I'm a 'happy camper'! :)
