New home. Hate the tiny shelves. Want to remove them, put a normal mantle in, and a TV above.

If you're putting a mantle in there you've got some major work ahead of you, and this is just a minor step. Taking those out is just a matter of chipping away the mortar around them with a suitable tool and cracking them loose. I doubt they have any additional fastening beyond the same mortar that holds the rest of the stone in place.

    Use caution when removing those pieces and you can use them to fill the holes , the mortar color will be off but their are ways of blending. – Ed Beal Nov 5 '19 at 16:39
