Mantel Makeover

After Christmas the fireplace mantel in my bedroom wasn't looking too hot. Christmas decor had been taken down and other junk remained.

See: Lamp from a project and kid toys, papers. Messy.

So I set to shoppin' around the house and even the garden.

      Some touches of spring. A floral tray, birdhouse and watering can.

                                                                       From my backyard.

  1. Beautiful. So jealous you have a fireplace in your bedroom! Lx

  2. Your mantle is so pretty. I love all the garden decor. And so nice to have a fireplace in your bedroom. We have a very small house, but the kids are gone (well, one is in a dorm, so not gone completely!) and I have a little extra room to work with. Enjoy the time while your kids are young, yet know that when they are grown you'll probably have a craft room! Ha, win/win!

  3. You did a great job! I love that you didn't even have to spend money for such a great makeover. Good job!

  4. Love what you did with your mantle, it looks great, and all ready for spring. I love the garden look too!
    blessings, Nellie

  5. What a pretty mantlepiece display you have created, isn't it amazing what you can find when you shop the house?

  6. That looks so pretty. Love the shape of that watering can. Thank you for linking to Favorite Things. laurie
