Hello friends and reinventors!
I never should have mentioned that whole “spring weather” thing…we got a dusting of snow last night. Ugh, when will I learn?
Thank goodness it warmed up to 50 degrees today, so it melted pretty quickly.
During those few days of spring weather, I did get my spring mantel styled, so when I get discouraged, I can just gaze at faux spring.
I made a few changes to my “base” mantel decor, i.e. window, books, plant, candle holders for texture…
The striped “plaque” was once a thrift store “art” piece that I covered with chalkboard paint.
The thing is…I suck at drawing on chalkboards, so it was either blank, or ugly most of the time.
So I painted over the chalkboard with my beloved Cracked Pepper and then taped off stripes and filled them in with the wall color, Linen White. I think it will serve as a great backdrop for seasonal touches, like this green wreath. I really love layering on a mantel, so the window with the stripes and wreath is a fave look.
The B is has been many colors, but today it’s Graphite from Amy Howard.
The printable is from Brepurposed. She offers a new freebie each Friday, and they are amazing. I like the sweet spring colors on the rustic clipboard, and I had fun repeating those shades in the books.
On that note, I would like to officially thank The Nester for using just a touch of pink on her book cover. That really helped me out.
I swear this plant is unkillable. It thrives here, with little to no sunlight, and watering whenever I remember.
Here’s a shot from the kitchen.
What do you think? Do you change up your mantel decor with the seasons?
