My mantel is solid white. Blinding white. The walls are beige and all of the baseboard, the doors and the door trim are also solid, blinding white.

Would it look stupid if I painted just the mantel a shade of brown? (Haven't really decided what shade). On one hand, I think it would make it look more expensive, but I dunno if it'd match the rest of the house!

Depending on what shade of beige, a nice chocolate brown would probably work wonders. Do you have pictures?

Okay, I added a pic  Smiley A chocolate brown sounds like it would be pretty. Would I need to sand off the white and just stain it or just paint over the white? I seriously have no clue!
