Make Your Mantel Shine This Holiday Season

Hanger of stockings, holder of centerpieces – a mantel plays a big role in setting the holiday scene. Here’s how you can improve yours.

Make Your Mantel Shine This Holiday Season


  1. Fill in any holes or dents with spackle.
  2. Allow to dry.
  3. Sand the holes and any rough areas.
  4. Tape around the mantel.
  5. Using the 2" angular brush (or a mini roller if your mantel has no detail), paint the front and side of the mantel.
  6. Paint the top of the mantel.
  7. Allow the mantel to dry for 24 hours before taping off to begin painting the wall.
  8. Begin by cutting in around the mantel (and any baseboards, windows, etc.).
  9. After cutting in, begin to roll your walls, starting from the outside of the wall and working to the other side.
