Fall Mantel

Hello!  Thanks for coming over to see my Fun Fall or Trash to Treasure mantel!  My budget for this was under $20.00,  so I knew it would be a tough one.  I'm one of those crazy people who leaves there decorations up till May...Haha, any one with me on that?...



Well, to avoid embarrassment I keep my decor neutral, and add only a few nature inspired pieces.

So here it is!


As you can see my nature inspired pieces are my pine cone (huge isn't it? ), my birdies, and last but not least my Berta Hummel painting.  

I love this picture! 
it is my color inspiration. 

This is what my mantel looked like before...

I have a very odd shape to work with.  The fireplace itself is in the corner, and next to it is my built in...I built it myself, I will show you that in a couple weeks. 

I found this amazing vintage/antique mirror and Savers!  

I have been looking for something to fill the space between my fire place and the top of my mantel for a while now, so when I saw this I snatched it up right away! 

All I did was paint it white! 


Alright!  Its your turn!
