Hi everyone! I hope your are having a great evening.Yesterday was so warm here in Pa. just fooled you into thinking it was spring…can’t wait because it is my very favorite season!
This morning I played around with my mantel, I wasn’t liking the look of the round mirror there so I put back the black framed mirror for now. I’m going to start looking for a larger one with maybe a more ornate frame, the one I have is just to plain looking. Here are some pics I took to show you. I tried to play around with different textures just to see how I liked it!
I have to shop around the house to find something to replace it, which I’m finally discovering to do and finding out that I don’t have to buy…just use something I already have! The only thing I have bought lately for the mantel are the topiaries and I got those on sale!
I’m not even sure it’s silver just metal I think, it was $2.00 at a church sale this past fall. As I was looking at this picture I noticed the pine needle laying there…I swear they multiply, I’m still picking them up:)
This is to the left of the mirror… ceramic balls are from Pier One, vase from Goodwill and for some more texture I gathered some twigs and tied with twine for on top of the dropcloth covered books!
To the right…do you see the nails? I haven’t got Stush to get them out yet, they are from Christmas for the ton of stockings I have to hang. The black and white picture is from the consignment store $3.00, urn I painted with ASCP…$2.00 at a yardsale and the box (says varnishes) was $4.00 at a yardsale a couple years ago! Isn’t is funny how I can remember the price of what I find and not remember what day it is? lol.So how do you like it? I do think the tray has to go though! One thing I do love about it is the whiteness of the fireplace:)
I went shopping with my bff Friday, I’ve been looking for something for a certain place and found it at Bed Bath and Beyond, here’s a pic of it, next post I’ll show you where I hang it! I had a 20% off coupon too!
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and of course I always love to read your comments:)
Love these parties:
