I am so excited to show you this year's Christmas mantel and a project for the fireplace that Hubby built for me.
I know it may not look like much but that wood piece hanging from the fireplace is kinda special to me. One because Hubby made it and two because he made it out of old wood trim that was taken out of my parents kitchen when they remodel. The very same kitchen I grew up in. So being the sentimentalist that I am I just couldn't let them toss them out. At that moment I didn't know what I would do with them but I knew it would eventually come to me. I love, love, love how it turned out.
It displays the burlap wreath I made a few days ago. The pretty glittered reindeer is a Dollar Tree find. Love Glitter!
Decided to keep the mantel simple because I want the wood piece to have center stage. A pretty pair of white reindeer form Target and bottle brush trees.
A couple of vases filled with faux snow and ornaments.
And a burlap runner with twinkle lights and a red berry garland.
Here is sort of a before picture of the fireplace piece:-) Love all the chippy, scuffed up charm the pieces had so I kept them as they were. However there were a few chips that showed a bit of blue paint, the color the kitchen was when my parents first bought the house. So I just touched them up with some paint and antiquing glaze so the whole piece would be all the same color.
Thank you so much for stopping by.
Wishing you all a wonderful new week.
Hugs and Kisses,
