mixed up mantle
i have always wanted a house with a mantle. though we have lived in 6 houses, there has only been one mantle. now that i have one.. i can't go back. when we move to jax, should there be no mantle... i will have to find a DIY project to make one myself! it's just the focal point of the room. sometimes it has family photos on it. sometimes it's simple with candles. but honestly i think i like the seasonal versions best. pottery barn worthy.. but with out the price. so it started like this. but it needed something.
i like to use some stuff i already have, but a trip to Micheal's i.s usually in order to add a little something, in this case - sparkle :)
here's the sparkle... Love it!!
its never really done. it changes all the time. i like to tweak till i'm happy with it. i think i'm done with my fall mantle now :) the last tweak was added today- it's probably a permanent fixture. i LOVE our new family photo!
