Hi everyone! I’m back today to show you my summer decorated mantel, I think this is the best yet but yet again I always think that:) I went with a white and green theme, even bought me some real ivy from Lowes, they say it’s hard to kill so that kind of plant is so right for me! I think it looks great in the bird planter. I don't know if I should add more or not so for right now I'm leaving it this way, for one thing it's not cluttered looking and that's a good thing!
I painted this mirror I posted about that I found at GW for $3.99, I painted it Cottage White, because I still have some left!
I added some glaze to it to give it a little tone down.
Here is the ivy, I like it because you have to wait until the soil is dry before watering, yeah!
I put some moss balls from the Dollar Tree in this GW vase/glass urn.
Two starfish from Pat Caftan's really finishes it off I think. I looked for white starfish in Jamaica but do you know I couldn’t find even one!
Mr. K asked what I wanted for our anniversary and I told him a desk from Craigslist, nothing expensive because I wanted to paint and distress it. We found this one for $40.00 already stripped and ready to be painted:) I don’t know what color paint I’ll use on it, I just have to keep looking at her and decide! For now she’s in the garage.
She also has her original hardware on her and is in great shape! Here’s a pic of her hardware I don’t know if I’ll keep them or not. I think they would look good painted or maybe those glass handles that are out there, I think Target sells them. What do you think?
