Congrats to Kathleen at faded charm for her 100th post and her year anniversary! She is the mastermind behind the fun filled White Wednesday!
Well I love my $20 Mantle. I carted this big ole mantle home 20years ago from a yard sale just down the road from my house. $20 bucks! Thats only a dollar a year! Talk about decorating on a shoestring budget! It's been white, then green, then white again. It had an old black ugly wood burning stove in it for years then a few years back we were able to put in a gas insert and two years ago we did the tile surround. ( which i would like to redo again maybe old ceiling tin or just paint the tiles?) I've had alot of fun with this piece!
My latest mantle decor is the fabulous big Ole' mirror in the awesome repurposed frame made out of old mouldings.
If your wondering how to put some extra character into your home you should seek out an old mantle, you don't need a fireplace you can just put it on a blank wall and put a bench with a pot of flowers in front of it. Or use it for a headboard like I did in my spare bedroom. Well enough about my mantle obsession.
Have a great Hump Day!
