Spring Mantel 2013

Ever since I painted our Fireplace hearth with LeCraie chalk paint, I am in LOVE with it!

Today I am sharing just a simple Spring Mantel. I will be adding and changing up again come Easter I’m sure.

Really, such a simple change has made a HUGE difference.

Even in terms of my seasonal decor.

I never cared for decorating our mantel in Spring.

This year, however, much different feeling.

First, I kept my vintage purple bottles on here and simple embellished them with some pretty yellow trim.

I found these pretty yellow faux flowers in a glass at Walmart

they are the Better homes and gardens collection and they really look

realistic in person.

I was happy to bring back my diy burlap banner

They are part of the Smith and Hawkins line.

    What a breath of fresh air! The touches of yellow are perfect. Don’t you love it when something comes easily and you don’t have to over-think it? Good job. Happy Sunday too…Ann

    It looks nice and springy, Debbie. I love those flowers-they ARE very realistic looking but what I love more than anything are those lavender bottles. They are just gorgeous….and the whole mantel looks lovely- xo Diana

    I have to figure out where the clock went to now. Don’t tell Mike that I miss it though! Your mantel looks very festive for spring. Those yellow flowers really do look real. I need to go check out Wally World.

    Oh! the more I see the black chalk paint distressed…ev.er.y.where. The more I’m thinking I should do this to my ktichen cabinets I painted last summer!
    They’ve already begun to get chipped anyway…why not make it official?!

    Your mantel looks fabulous… I’m pinning this!

    It all looks so beautiful Debbie! I found some shabby chic clothes pins at Michaels the other day and was planning on making one of these out of my scraps. Now I can’t wait to get it done!

    Your spring mantel is so cute! Hobby Lobby has the best lanterns…don’t they? I saw those cute bunnies at Target and was very tempted. I need to get off the computer and go set up my Easter Mantel. I think I will…you’ve inspired me.
