Hi there everyone! Today, I am sharing our Rustic mantel with a touch of whimsy. If you have been around for a while, you know I struggle with our mantel. It’s a weird set up and for the life of me I never understood why the builder put the opening for a tv over the mantel considering we couldn’t even set up the room that way if we wanted to. In other words, the couch could not be across from it. The pub room is off the family room and there would be no access to get around it. Whatev’s, we made due and we added our own flair of interest to the opening with a chande and mirror. With that said, I still always have a decorating dilemma on that stinkin mantel.
We recently added the tobacco barnwood shutters. I just shared our tobacco barnwood pantry door. Now you can see how it all comes together.
A blogging friend of mine Linda from Itsy bits and pieces sent me these vintage bingo cards. I adore them but did not know what exactly I was going to do with them. I love adding texture to the mantel per season. In fact, my favorite mantels are always my Fall mantels. I can add a lot of texture and color and feel it looks the best that time of year.
I used a roll of burlap with lace to drape across the mantel. There was my texture for the Spring and Summer months. Then I took some twine, added that and clipped on the bingo cards.
Certainly is a bit quirky wouldn’t you say? I like it though and for me to actually like it this time of year is a bonus for all the family!
I think my husband wants to ship me off. This was my birthday present. A vintage postal scale.
I have had the vintage purple bottles for a few years now. You can read the history on vintage purple bottles here.
It’s quite interesting. Thanks for stopping over today. If you are not a regular here, I sure would love to see you back again.
