(This fireplace mantel does NOT include miltered hanger board or mounting
Put the mantel together by putting the main shelf on the floor, upside down. Next bolt on
each leg with the hardware included with your mantel. This mantel does not come with miltered
hangar board but is the suggestion from the production team. Hangar board can be obtained at most
A hanger board may be fabricated using a 1x4, cut at a 45-degree angle. You may also

mantel, the legs will touch the floor or the hearth.

that is mounted on the mantel shelf. Use your hand to hold the 2 pieces together. When together
correctly, the 2 hanger boards will form a complete board.
Measure from the bottom of the leg down to the wall hanger board and record this measurement. Measure
both the left and right sides to insure that you have a correct measurement.
Mark your recorded measurement on your wall, both left and right. Take the
wall hanger board and mount it on the wall so that the bottom of the board is on your recorded
marks. Check to see that your wall hanger board is centered over your firebox before mounting.
Once mounted, if the mantel or shelf doesn't seem to fit snugly to the wall, you
may put a small shim of paper, cardboard, etc., to fill the gap where the 2 halves of the hanger board
