Faux Fireplace Mantel

Submitted by mandamo488 on Mon, 11/21/2016 - 11:03

For this project, I wanted my faux fireplace to look very similar to a real fireplace (of course!). So in orde to do that, I added a little more depth by using 1x6 boards instead of 1x3s. For the front of the piece, I added the faux brick wall paneling from Home Depot and used the spackling method to give it that weathered appearance!!

I had most of the materials on hand so overall I would say it cost about $50. If you have to buy all the materials it would still cost less than $100!
