I have been jealous of all the cute spring mantels popping up lately.
So last night, I went to the thrift shop and started looking for treasures to turn my mantel into something special.
You see, I have more than a mantel, I have a nook…..a deep alcove to house a television. The problem – I didn’t like the TV being up that high…so, I have a nook.
What’s in my nook? Take a look
Tall glass jar – thrift shop.
Eggs that are inside are treasured eggs that the girls made when they were little.
Chalkboard plate – just made it today! I bought the white plate at Target on clearance and used chalk board spray paint.
Little picture above the plate – thrift shop!
Little dragon fly candle holder – thrift shop.
Topiary – something I already owned.
White candle stick – it used to be gold and I spray painted it antique white. It was another thrift shop find.
Little clay chick tea light candle holder –you guessed it, thrift shop.
All the bottles are thrift shop finds – the flowers are from my garden.
The bottle in the middle was too plain, so I added natural twine to it.
I made the banner out of scrap pieces of fabric and added chip board letters to spell out SPRING.
I like the way it turned out – what do you think? Would you do anything differently?
