Stone Wall with fireplace vents

Our living room has a stone wall fireplace has open vents above the fireplace. There are also vents on the bottom where the hearth is located. I want a mantel, or least a shelf, but I'm not sure if I can do this considering the open vents in the stones. Any suggestions?

How about posting a picture?

Re: Stone Wall with fireplace vents

Does your fireplace have a fan that blows heated air out of these vents? My parents have two fans that are down below the hearth and blow air through slots above the firebox. But they too have a mantel right above those vents. Can you give a little more info/picture?
