Project Mantle Bed

Projects projects projects around the house! Do they ever end?
Mac, a former basement dweller, moved up stairs to sleep in the spare room (Spare Oom) last winter when it was particularly frigid and has never returned to the nether regions below. This is a little project that really doesn't seem difficult that I'd like to use in his room. In aforementioned basement, is a fireplace mantle that formerly lived on The Farm. It's stained a medium walnut color.

In the ever rotating furniture co-op, when we moved furniture to Amy's, we claimed a black shaker style dresser for Mac's room. So we are all ready to get this room done!

Well, you'd think so, wouldn't you?

I'm taking a little poll. The room has light mocha walls and hardwood floors. The dresser is black. So...

1. What color should the mantle be?

2. What kind of fabric should I use?

3. What accent color/s should I use?

The completion of this project is now in your hands!

I don't recall exactally what the mantle looks like. It's quite simple isn't it?
Paint it black.
Fabric? depends on other linens in the room like comforter. Fabric you come!
You have a great eye for color...go with you gut, it will be great!
