My Spare Mantel

Beth over at The Stories of A to Z has started a Friday Mantel party.  Holla!  I’ll be sharing the mantel in our den today.  This is a small room where we do much of our television watching.

While I love the two mantels we have over our fireplaces, since Christmas they have been pretty bare.   Add to this that anything I might have decorated them with is either packed up, given away or sold at a yard sale last year, I don’t have much to even take from another room!

So, here’s what I got for the time being.  I had bought the candles and holders at Home Goods a couple of years ago for a client job, but she changed her mind and I never got back to the store.  I found these in the basement when I was bringing the Christmas stuff down.

The art piece in the middle is something I will be talking about in a future post.  I have had it waiting since Summer to go in its proper place.  The “K” I got from Ballard Designs on sale and the topiaries were from Home Goods. 

Maybe next week I can manage to do something with the mantel in our great room ~ currently that one has two larger topiaries and a mantel clock on it.

You silly! This is fabulous! And I LOVE the scroll rug spray paint canvas thingy in the middle. Your big K on the end is super chic and the candles make it mantely. It looks great. I'm so glad you joined :).

It looks wonderful to me. Nice job.

Unique art! I always love to see a great work of art over a fireplace rather than a mirror or decorative objects on their own.

It looks great to me! The artwork in the middle is really neat looking.

I pulled everything off my mantel after Christmas and I haven't redecorated it yet. It's just sitting there bare as can be!

It's looking good! Love your artwork and the K (I need one of those). I think it would be fun to layer the K offset in front of the artwork too. Have a good weekend.

Your mantel looks great and I look forward to hearing about the piece in middle! My mantel is pretty bare since the holidays too. I need to start thinking about doing something! Yours looks great!

Two fireplaces, you're very blessed. I love the color scheme in this and those little topiary's are wonderful. Home Goods and Hobby Lobby, two stores we don't have but I wish we did. I keep seeing so many nice things from those places.
Blessings,
Marcia

Hi Kathy...

Beautiful mantel! Wow...lucky you that your client changed their mind about those fabulous candleholders...I love them! Your large initial...so pretty! Now...I'm very curious about your art piece. I just love anything with a beautiful "scrolled" design on it! Can't wait to hear more about the piece! Thank you for sharing your beautiful mantel with us!

Warmest winter wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design
