Mantel Decorating!

CIMG1534

Mantels are a pain to me! I have never been able to be satisfied after I would fix my mantel. On this one in our family room, it is marble and narrow. Why would anyone fix it like that? That will be a project for hubby one of these days, but in the meantime, I have to deal with it. The window you see was given to me and not in very good shape. After much cleaning and a coat of paint, plus a glaze it began to look rather nice. I went ahead and hot glued a cord around the inside of the window just to be safe. The stick on letters made it easy to dress the window. The topiary, the wreath, and the candle holders along with the candles all came from a local goodwill store. None of it was very much, I think all together the total cost of the makeover was about 10.00. Maybe decorating a mantel will get easier for me! I do enjoy them and there is nothing like a warm fireplace to set the tone of rest and relaxation. Have a wonderful day!
