This is an outdoor mantel, or hearth designed for professional photographers but also used for garden and home decor.
The construction is all wood and uses the highest quality outdoor paint to make it both water and weather resistant. It is very durable, yet light enough to be shipped and easily moved around if needed by two people.
Most mantels of this type available for decorative purposes are constructed out of MDF (a type of particle board) which makes them VERY heavy, easily damaged with water and not durable enough to withstand transport or even shipping once assembled! However, since this is an all-real-wood construct it achieves maximum utility to photographers and decorators alike!
This item ships in three pieces but requires no tools to assemble and is easily moved as one piece or in three pieces. The assembled product is 4.5 feet tall and 6 feet wide.
