Spring Mantel Love

Hi everyone and happy Tuesday to you! Nice weather we are having here in Pa. in the 70’s, and I’m so enjoying it!
I’d like to share with you my spring mantle and if you have been following me for a while you know my mantle and I have a love/hate relationship with each other! It’s a long mantel about 7ft so it’s hard sometimes to not fill it completely up with “stuff”! I am hoping that by painting the brick Cottage White it will somehow bring everything together. See the ceiling fan in the mirror? We just bought new ones to replace this one and the two out in the kitchen and other room off the kitchen, I so can’t wait to see them up! I was just going to paint them but Mr. K said let’s just buy them so I didn’t argue on that one ladies!
I took this one after I added the eggs on the book!
The blue eggs I bought a few years ago and the ones on the book are the ones I made.
The pink dogwood branch is from DT and the bottle is from Marshall’s.

The mirror behind the candle is from GW, in fact all of them are, and that’s not dirt on it, it’s the glass and it is so heavy so I’m thinking it’s an old one. The candle holder is from DT and I painted it white.P3132639T
Also in my Copy Cat Post I forgot to mention that the nailheads are silver and I bought them a Hobby Lobby!
Thanks for stopping by and I’m so glad it’s almost Spring and I know you are too!Smile

Very nice, Rondell. I think the brick will be beautiful painted white. I know a lot of people just about die when you say you are painting brick but I have painted it several times in my life and always been pleased with the results. Your mantle looks great! xo Diana

I love everything about your mantel! All the pops of white remind me that spring is coming! I just can't figure out what to do with mine, it's long like yours and I feel like I have to fill it up!

Have a great week! :)

Love your mantel. I'm working on mine! Love the mirrors and the little bunny!!

Shannon @ Cozy Home Scenes And Cozy Home Kitchen said...

I love your mirror collection and the cute bunnies! Decorating my mantel is a challenge because it seems so tall and then our ceilings are high. Seems small things get lost on the mantel. I love seeing other people's ideas for inspiration.

Thanks for sharing your pretty spring mantel at my party!

I love how it pops off that door!
