Chalk Painted Fireplace Mantel


Giving your fireplace mantel a new look with paint!! Oh the power of paint!! I love that it's really that easy- I think picking the new colors can be more work that just jumping in and deciding to do it. I painted this back in September but I finally made the time to share with you how I did and what colors I used to bring together all the elements in my own home and design.

    We first painted our oak mantle & surround black, then distressed it, but felt it was too hard, so now we primed it & painted it off white like our woodwork. Still not quite right......any suggestions based on how you layered your fireplace surround?

    I love your fire place! It looks so upscale and makes the space look larger. I want to use those colors to finish some furniture pieces to match my armoire was it difficult? How long did it take you? Thanks for the pin
