I have mentioned in my posts before how much I love having a fireplace. It's warm, comforting and makes a home look inviting. I do lack the creative part of decorating the mantel. I currently have just junk on top of mine that I need to put away so I can start a new beautiful mantel. I started searching for some ideas and wanted to to share with you some of the beautiful mantels people have created. Even if you don't have a fireplace you can still put in a mantel with just the wall. There are some really cute ideas for those too.
My website is about Thrift Store shopping so take a look at the ones that you like and find the items at your local Thrift Store and save yourself money. Baskets, bowls, wreaths, jars, frames, plates, plate holders, vases, etc. Don't spend a bunch of money when there is so much out there to find. That is the fun part of Thrift Store shopping is the hunt for the perfect find. Good luck!
I know it isn't Christmas but I love the box shelf! I saw something like this at the Thrift Store a while back and now I wish I had picked it up. You could use that for any holiday or season. Change the decorations in the boxes and take off the stockings and garland and you could make something darling!
I LOVE THIS! DEFINITELY MY STYLE!
NO FIREPLACE??? NO PROBLEM!
