I'M YELLING THIS BECAUSE I'M SO EXCITED! I'm finally done and I love it. I was inspired by all of your comments on my "Mantel Dilemma Post". THANK YOU! If you missed it, here is the before.
I added the berries, stars, pictures that I love, and I even built my own little flower box. Then, I painted my shutters cream to balance my cream monster entertainment center that is on the other side of the room. Well, do you all recognize anything else? OH, come on, I know you see it! I used some more handy dandy fencing wood. If you're wondering how I made the shutters, I used Donna's shutter tutorial HERE. EASY! The flower box is just a simple LOOOOOONNNNNGGGG rectangle out of fencing. That's it. I love the cozy feel I get when I walk in the door now! I wish I had my camera handy when my hubby saw it. When I saw his face I knew I'd done good!:) Thanks for being so patient sweetie and thanks for loving all that I do! This MANTLE's for YOU! Oh, and of course YOU too. Thanks girlies!
