Most of our snow has finally melted and I have been busy decorating inside. I am really hoping it gets a little bit warmer so I can start spray painting. I have so many things that I need to paint. I am not complaining though because I will take 50 degree weather over the snow and cold any day! Anyway, the real reason for this post is to share my spring mantel with all of you. I tried to go for an organic, earthy feel this year. I went to different rooms in the house and
stole borrowed a few things to make it feel complete.
The one thing that I struggle with my mantel is trying to make it not so dreary. The stone on the fireplace tends to make everything blend together. I think adding some pops of yellow makes the other decor stand out a little bit more.
I bought these two little birds at a garage sale a few years back. I didn't even have to repaint them! I added some basket filling that I bought from the the Dollar Tree to make it look like the birds are in a nest. The candlesticks came from Goodwill a few years ago. I used Heirloom White by Rustoleum to paint the candlesticks.
The chalkboard came from Goodwill . It originally started out as a picture of some trees, I really liked the size of the frame and the color. I flipped the picture around and painted it with chalkboard paint.
The bicycle is from Hobby Lobby (probably 7 years ago). The old coffee pitcher was bought at a garage sale.
These yellow, dutch shoes are one of my recent finds from Goodwill. I love that they are yellow!
I love stacking/layering items on old books it just makes the item that much more interesting. The old whiskey jug was my great aunt's who passed away a few years ago. I thought it looked springy with the blue tulips and I love the fact that it came from somebody special. It makes me smile!
I also wanted to say hello to all of my new followers on Facebook, Google friends, Hometalk, Instagram and Pinterest and thank you for all of your lovely comments. I love meeting new people!!! :)
