Well, it is officially Fall, y’all and I am officially late to the party. Whoopsies! The Fall linky parties started this week but I was late to get my stuff down from the attic and shop around my house. I am so happy to say that I love my mantel and everything is officially from the attic and around my house…nothing new was purchased, yea!
This is how my mantel looks and I love it! I was trying to copy the cover of this month’s Pottery Barn magazine and incorporate the texture with white and silvers. Last year, I didn’t want to spend money on the gorgeous silver pumpkins from the stores so I spray painted $1 pumpkins from the Dollar Tree – works for me!
The white pumpkins I got from Target several years ago and am still using, I love when that happens! The garland was a purchase from several years ago as well and is holding up quite well! It has the gorgeous colors of leaves in October, when the trees are really starting to turn and have three to four shades of color on each leaf, and cute little acorns scattered randomly throughtout the garland.
I used three elements for the mantel and love that it is full but not crazy chaotic: candles, pumpkins and a garland. It was very easy to put together and even better, will be very easy to take down and put away!
Here is one last look at this year’s fall mantel! Sorry for the light, our living room has large windows facing our backyard but by the time I come home it is already shaded so the ‘natural’ light is low. I still think it looks great and love how cozy it makes our living room feel.
I’ll show you the mantel with the side shelves soon – I have a plan for them and am working on updating them since my last Before & After post on this area!
