Mantel Makeover



  1. I KNOW IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE MY LAST POST...I HAVE BEEN SUPER BUSY REDECORATING & DOWNSIZING!! TAKING LOTS OF AWESOME THINGS TO MY BOOTH!

THIS PICTURE ABOVE IS THE BEFORE PICTURE OF ONE SIDE OF MY LIVINGROOM. I WAS FEELING QUITE BORED AND NOT SO HAPPY WITH IT. I DECIDED IT WAS TIME TO BRING MORE OF THE DARKER COLORS INTO PLACE! ADDING WARMTH, TEXTURE AND LOTS MORE INTERESTING TREASURES.....

IN THE CENTER OF MY MANTEL DISPLAY IS THIS "OUR MOTHER" MEMORIAL FRAMED AND DATED 1905! THIS WAS A WONDERFUL ESTATE FIND FROM A FEW YEARS BACK! DISPLAYED WITH IT ARE SOME VINTAGE TROPHIES, SILVER TREASURES, MY FAV OLD CLOCK, WITH OLD BOOKS! MUCH MORE INTERESTING THAN BEFORE, DON'T YOU THINK??


OLD COLUMN LAMPS, ANTIQUE LIGHTNING RODS, STATUES, AND ARCHITECTURAL ITEMS ADD A LOT MORE INTEREST THAN JUST A BUNCH OF OLD CHIPPY WHITE TREASURES, LOL..


WELL, IT'S HARD TO BELIEVE, BUT I AM ALMOST AT 200 FOLLOWERS!

I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO HAVE A 200 FOLLOWER GIVEAWAY!! COME ON AND BECOME A FOLLOWER, YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID! I HAVE SOME AWESOME THINGS IN MIND FOR THIS GIVEAWAY!!! YOU ALL HAVE A GREAT DAY!! TAKE CARE!!

Hi...I don't think I have been to your blog before. I hope I will help with getting you over 200 followers! I love the warmer colors....I love vintage pieces, but I am not into all the white (shhh-don't let anyone else hear me!!) I love the richer colors...you did a great job!

I was going to follow you, but it is not on your blog at the moment. Blogger must be acting up again.
