last post! I'm sooo glad I'm not the only doing this and I have actually received a ton of good tips that I'm definitely going to have to start using when I'm trying to clean my house in a rush :) You all are amazing!
Here was last years mantel (you can tell I used a lot of the same concepts...not much thinking here lol)
I'm so glad this new mantel came together easily. Just one stop to the store and it was done. I got all the ceramics from Michaels. I used to go there all the time, but haven't for forever. I forget what great deals they have on stuff, especially if you use their coupons :) I think the total cost for these 4 pieces was about $10. Right up my alley :)
this sunburst mirror was made years and years ago from some poster board.
I had to keep a little bit of 'coastal' in the mantel since it reminds me so much of Spring and Summer so I kept the nautical rope knot and lantern.
Christmas post, I decided to try something and line these with a ton of books. I liked the look, but not for me. So, down they all went, and a lighter variety of items went back up.
