I sanded everything smooth and sprayed all but the top of the mantle with two coats of oil-based primer. One of my favorite things to build are Faux Fireplace Mantels.  Even though I already have one in my home and have no room for more I just keep making them. To finish my mantel I painted first with a slate gray then some white homemade chalk paint for the top coat.  I lightly distressed the edges to reveal the gray underneath.

Oh my gosh Mimi—Those corbels are awesome!  So perfect for a faux mantel.  I never ever come across any corbels….well that I can afford that is!
I just came across your blog when I was searching for faux fireplaces and I never imagined one looking so good. I want a fireplace so badly, but I have to admit – not for the functionality but so I can decorate the mantle each season. Love the idea of storing the mantel  Thank you so much for sharing your DIY Faux Mantel today!


You have given me a great inspiration for the surround I wanted to build for my ugly floor to ceiling brick fireplace.
