    Is the primed finish really white as shown in the photo?
    3 Answers
    The unit will indeed come with a thin coating of white primer. Paint can be applied directly without the need for any additional preparation.
    Submitted by: eFireplaceStore on June 23, 2014
    It is white, primer obviously. 2 coats of paint are needed for a nice finish. Very happy with it overall.

    Decent, But Extremely Difficult to Put Up
    As many reviews have mentioned, it is extremely difficult to put up. The directions are incredibly vague. There were several points where we thought about abandoning the entire project, but we already had created holes in the wall and decided to push on with it. We originally used the screws and nails provided, but found they were way too weak to support the mantle,and anchor the mantle to the wall securely. After several trips to Lowe's for larger screws, mollies, and longer nails, we finally managed to get it up. It looks nice now, but it took 12 hours of working on it, and a few arguments between my fiance and I to get it done, so I can't say for certain that I would recommend this product.
    ProsInexpensive.
    ConsHard to follow instructions. Poorly functioning hardware.
    By Andrea from Norwalk on December 7, 2016
    You get what you pay for.
    This was a relatively inexpensive fireplace mantel surround kit we found online. We followed the instructions perfectly but all of the cleats were too weak to hold the included screws. When we screwed into the wood the cleats were made of it just split directly down the center causing them to be unusable. We managed to utilize old wood we had in the house instead. The mantel itself and the trim is fine, just the fact that the rest of the wood provided was not usable is the reason why we are giving it 2 stars.
    ConsCleats are not strong enough for the screws provided.

    Awesome mantel for an unbeatable price.
    Awesome mantel for an unbeatable price. Perfect addition to our living room. According to my husband, installation was a bit tricky and the mantel needed a little extra reinforcing to make more sturdy. I would suggest getting the already primed one so it saves you a step. All you need to do is add a coat of white paint and you have yourself a beautiful centerpiece.
    ProsSize in description is accurate, material is high quality
    Consbetter installation instructions

    Great value. More than basic skills needed to assemble. This is my second unit. Looks great. Would recommend to anyone. Order fulfillment was very good too.

    Excellent Product
    The mantel arrived two days after I ordered it. It only took a few hours to get it up and then only a short time to paint, since it was already primed. We couldn't be happier with this mantel. The price, compared to others we looked at, is incredible...and we got free shipping. I highly recommend this product--and the company.
    ProsArrived quickly, everything included, looks super.
    ConsIt didn't put itself up 😄

    prompt delivery
    Our fireplace mantel was delivered on the day it was promised and in good condition. The assembly was not as easy as expected as the instructions were a bit confusing. All and all the mantel has made a significant difference in our living room.

    Good Quality, Good Price
    We purchased this mantel as a decorative upgrade from our previous floating mantel. We were pleased when our purchase arrived sooner than expected. Assembly took only two hours since we added new tile and surrounding floor area. A few screws were missing, but I had some that worked just as well. The result is a gorgeous addition to our living room! The only thing I wish were different is the depth of the mantel. Otherwise, we are very happy.

    48" Mantel--Primed
    We are very pleased with this mantel. We love how it looks. It arrived earlier than expected and was undamaged in any way. I give it 4 stars for the following reasons. It did take us quite a while--including a call to customer service--to figure out which pieces go where. The instructions include directions for several models but are not model specific, so it often lists pieces or directions that don't go with your particular model, but you don't know if you need to skip the step or if a piece is missing. We had a carpenter friend install this for us, and he beefed up some of the mounting pieces. He did not think it was wise to mount it with only what was included. Overall, very pleased with the final product. The directions need help though.

    Review for
    As far as looks are concerned, the mantel deserves a FIVE star rating. Delivery also deserves five stars. When it came to putting it together though, it was missing screws which made assembly difficult. Another fault was that the holes were not drilled in the proper places. I bought this for my daughter and son-in-law as an early christmas gift, and it caused them alot of aggravation to have to go out and find the correct screws and start drilling into the mantel in order to put it together. I must say though, the finished product is exquisite and well worth the money!

    For New Home
    Although we had subcontracted most of the work for the completion of our new home, we decided to order this mantel which we found online. It was easy to install and we are very pleased with the results. We made a trim modification using wood instead of the tile shown in the picture. We are very pleased.
