Good morning friends!
Today I’m here to share my Valentine’s Day Mantle.
I’m not a big decorator for holidays that aren’t Christmas, but I do like to add a little touch here and there.
Yikes, photographing mantles with windows with ugly ceiling fan lights on is d-i-f-f-i-c-u-l-t. I strongly dislike the dark days of winter. I promise you my walls are not the pinky-orange color that they look like here.
Anyway, I took down most of the red from my Christmas mantle, added some texture with old spools, grapevine and a pine cone, and layered a small framed heart over the chalkboard. I love me some layers, and the curvy frame (found at my precious Goodwill) lightens things up. The larger “tree” is your basic green foam spray painted brown and wrapped with yarn. The smaller one is just painted cuz I got really tired of wrapping and gluing yarn. I figured you would understand.
Here’s a better pic with truer colors. Those wood snowflake ornaments are a favorite.
Have a great Tuesday!
Coming soon: Inspiration boards for the makeovers of my three kids’ bedrooms and a bathroom. As soon as I figure out how to make inspiration boards on-line. Any suggestions for a good place to go for help?
