Faux Mantel From an Old China Hutch


I really wanted a mantel of some sort to decorate for the seasons.... but a real fireplace was not in the budget at this point. So I found an old china hutch (the top piece from a china cabinet) and we fixed it up and repurposed it into a Faux Mantel of sorts!

Before - Here is the original piece- I picked it up at the local Sally Ann.

We replaced the glass in the doors with some wainscoting panel board that we already had on hand.
