I finally got the Christmas decorations put away!
How about you?
I usually DON’T decorate my mantel… EXCEPT for Christmas.
And normally…after Christmas…
I stick this huge single canvas painting up there until next Christmas.
BUT THIS YEAR…
I decided to have a little RUSTIC FUN with my mantel!
It took me a couple of tries to get it where I wanted it.
This was my FIRST attempt:
it didn’t sit well with me.
Maybe a little too country? I don’t know.
Here’s the second attempt for my Rustic Winter Mantel…
((with a little living room staging involved!))
Recognize the Game Board?
(I borrowed the table top from my old crate table)
I love texture…
so I tried to create texture in my display by combining
woven placemats, old & new metal, old wood, twine and winter wheat.
So… now for a little staging fun…
This is a more of a simple look… I like it!
I had to have a LITTLE more fun in my “play time”
by adding a few pieces!
My cat has the right idea here!
Yeah… I could see myself cozying up to the fire with a
hot cup of coffee, a snuggly blanket and a good book!!
So much fun to play around with décor… isn’t it?!!
there we have it…
My Rustic Winter Mantel.
Thanks for Stopping By!!
Hope everyone had a safe New Years and will be greatly blessed in 2012!!
Now go get warm… it’s cold outside!!
