Fireplace mantel

I'm looking for a nice fireplace mantel. Any recommendations and do they ever come on sale? Some context as well since I'm quite new to home projects is that the fireplace is 50 inches and the tv I'm putting it under is 75 inches if that matters. Thanks

If you are painting it, it’s one of the easier DIY projects. I would not put a TV about a hot source, but if you do, I would not put it directly on the mantel.

New ...
Look at DIY Big Box Stores ... Lowe’s, Rona, Home Depot
Or online places ... Wayfair
Or stores that specialize in Gas Fireplaces

Used...
Habitat for Humanity Restore
Antique Stores
Architectural Stores
Kijiji etc

And yes NEW will go on sale
But the best bargains are often used
Esp if you want something more substantial in style

As to hanging a tv above a fireplace ... not a fan
Esp if your room allows for other options
Here’s another RFD topic on that
