Whitney at Shanty 2 Chic had always wanted a mantle, but her fireplace just wasn’t set up for one. To get the look, she opted to go for a long shelf with a row of hooks to hold scarves, stockings, or decorations. Using two 5-foot boards and a small cut of molding, she was able to get the mantle look with out all the hassle. A little bit of paint and some fancy hooks later, she had a beautiful faux mantle perfect for setting picture frames and holding holiday stockings.
This is Whitney’s finished faux mantle.
