Our Spring Mantel‚Ä¶Sort of
As I have mentioned before, last year we completed some pretty major renovations on our home.
I have finally gotten my act together to start sharing the before and afters of our own home, but, not yet.¬† I know, I am a tease.
But this week I will share my family room.
One of the challenges has been that since we finished we have been in ‚Äúholiday‚Äù mode.¬† Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter and Valentine‚Äôs Day.
Now, I am finally ready to pull my house together for the day to day, not just for holidays.
So, I have re-done my mantel.¬† It is kind of springy.¬† But, my real intention was to do a mantel, our mantel to enjoy and live with.
I hope you like it, I do.
I didn‚Äôt add a lot of color, just some warm browns, creams, and green.
I found this tray online at Target last year and it has been on the coffee table in my living room.¬† I thought it added a nice touch and tie in with the clock faces.
For a little bit of Easter, there are two bunnies.¬† When Easter is over, they can be removed without too much disruption.¬† I also added a small ironstone pitcher with dried lavender and hydrangea.
I found the nesting basket at a yard sale last year and filled it with hydrangea.¬† It is hanging on a twig like ribbon some friends gave me.
The mirror reflects a lot of light in the room and the picture in the upstairs hall.¬† At a different angle it also reflects the grouping on top of the armoire.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!¬† Laura
Oh, and I will be sharing at some of the parties in my sidebar, stop on by!
