Mantles. What a great vehicle for decor. Especially seasonal decor.
Here are some visuals to get your juices flowin’.
Now, if you don’t have a fireplace/mantle in your home and are crying at this point because you want one…well, stop crying. There is hope.
Lowe’s has fireplace surrounds and mantles that are already primed. You just buy, paint and install. Voila! Instant mantle.
Or, I am sure you could build your own custom mantle. Since math and I are enemies, this would not be an option for me.
I have also seen some beautiful, shabby mantles at local antique stores. So, why not take a look around?
I think this is my favorite. Sigh.
Here is my mantle. I think I need to make some tweaks however, by adding another large piece or by hanging the window a bit higher on the wall. I think this would aide in drawing the eye up, therefore making the room feel larger.
I apologize for the dark photos…that is what happens when you wake up early on a Saturday morning and decide to snap some photos before you have had any coffee.
Do you have a mantle? If so, send me a photo & I will post it!
If you don’t have a mantle, what other forms does your decorating take on?
Thanks for stopping by friends!
