Then we used our handy dandy HomeRight paint sprayer and painted the pieces we were using to build the mantle.
I guess if you were looking for a really  simple mantle, at this point you could be done.
If you’re interested in how we did the rest of this fireplace wall, check out these posts. Wood fireplace mantel shelf design and finish changes can be made to fit your personal needs and preferences.
Mantel dimension changes may be required to fit the size of your fire place and firebox opening. In our old home we had an extremely dated mantel above our fireplace that I would have loved to have replaced. Just follow the directions in this guide and adjust based on the length of the space you want to shelve. SupaWood, PAR pine and extruded polystyrene moulding are all that you need to make an attractive fireplace surround and mantel shelf for a home.
When Ashley deconstructed her original fireplace surround, rock cladding mounting to a backing board was the first step in getting everything ready for the new fireplace surround and mantel shelf.


With the old surround removed, a framework of PAR pine was constructed around the fireplace, and it is this framework that will hold all the pieces in place. After placing the bottom section, you can start building up the sides and working towards the top of the fireplace surround. Continue adding framework up the sides and then along the top of the fireplace surround for the all-important mantel shelf. After installation of all the framework necessary to build the basic structure, it's time to start cladding with supawood. To build up the mantel shelf so that a panel can be mounted onto the top for finishing, blocks of pine have been cut to size and placed along the length of the shelf area.
Here you can see the detail added to create the effect of columns down either side of the fireplace surround.
Besides the 4×4, we only used four boards from the hardware store to build our mantle.
Our fireplace is a stone brick from floor to ceiling so attaching the 4th was difficult but done. A custom made shelf mantle will adorn your fireplace and help achieve that special focal point of interest in your home.


To be sure you are complying with the code, it is suggested that you check with your local Building & Safety Department.
If you or your husband is handy… this is a really simple DIY mantel guide that you can finish in one day. It is easier to start the process from the bottom up, and the first piece to go in is the hearth section of the fireplace surround. A basic framework of PAR pine timber is lightweight and easy to work with and you can build individual framework sections to fit into any space. 10mm-thick PAR pine has been added on top of the supawood board to add detail, while extruded polystyrene moulding is added to the top for the mantel shelf. You can always opt to buy a pre-made mantel but it will cost you a pretty penny to get one with this much wonderful detail.
