Spring Mantel

April 25, 2011 0 Comments

This is my friend & neighbor Chandra’s dining room fireplace mantel that I “spring-ified” recently. Here is a “before”shot of it:

It’s very large and dark, so we lightened it up quite a bit using thrift-store white ceramics and some greens and baskets.

I like to keep mantels simple. Because of the brick background, it looks best to keep patterns and colors to a minimal and add texture with baskets and greenery.

It is ready for Spring – just like me!:)
