I still used some of my painted pots from My Very Colorful Summer Mantel.


I also brought in another oldie but goody… the “ol’ cottage drawer” I repurposed long ago.

I had to took the handle off so I could sit some pots on top of it.

I think it blended in nicely with my mantel.

I really like the cool tones of the blue and green in this summer mantel.

And there you have it folks! :)
