Easter Mantel

Did you miss me last week?  Sorry for the absence.  Hubby and I were in sunny California where we met up with our oldest son.  The baseball team was there playing some California teams on their spring break.  So, three for one – I got to see my boy, I got to watch him play baseball, and I got to go to the beach! It was a great time for sure!!

It only took me a couple of days after having the mantel finished to start scheming it’s first decor. Since Easter is coming quickly I thought I would do something simple for that.  

I have never had a mirror above our mantel, but I knew that was something I really wanted to find to add to our new light and bright space.  I scoured high and low for an affordable option and landed with this one from Ross.  A great size for $25 I think!

I added a free printable from here. And the rest are items I already had.

The vase on the end there got a little update with paint.  I have had it forever, and it was just a little tired.  But, now I love it all over again!

I cannot begin to tell you how much I am enjoying our new space.  I still have a couple of details to attend to (like something to put that other plant in), but it is so much better already!!

Spring Mantel

I know, I know, I just did a post about my mantel decor.  πŸ™‚ But, ya know that was for Easter and Easter’s over so I needed something fresh that would last for a while.

When I decorate my mantel I really do challenge myself to use things I have.  I move things around.  Steal things from other places in the house and make things new.  

Everything else I pulled out of my stash or borrowed from elsewhere.  You can find my burlap wreath tutorial here.  

It just got some new bows.  πŸ™‚  The trough my hubby made for me at Thanksgiving – I just filled it with a garland that actually used to hang on my front door. I made a small purchase of a couple of ivy plants to bring some fresh green and life to the mantel.

I love the simplicity of it and the pop of color.  

I finished up a few pillows for the family room this weekend, and I’m waiting on a fabric order to arrive to put the final touch on the room for a while at least.  I think I’m ready to move to the backyard.  I have been scheming ideas in my head for that space!  πŸ™‚

As always thanks for stopping by!

Mirror Update

I am always looking for ways to repurpose things. Using things I have and making them better. Re-working something to serve our home better.

About a year ago I purchased a mirror at Ross. I liked the mirror. It was the right size and shape. It was the right price. However, after having it up on the mantel for a while I decided that maybe I made a hasty choice, and that maybe the style wasn’t quite mine.
