Hi there everyone! Hope you had a fabulous Christmas spent with your family and friends. We really had a nice relaxing time and just spent the day in our Pj’s eating and watching netflix. Can it get any more perfect than that?!
Our boys are so grown up now:( It was quite difficult to even get this snap of those two rascals. But I did!
I know y’all are going to think I am crazy but today I already took down our Christmas tree. Considering it has been up since the second week in November, it was time to clean up. But you know how after you take everything down the house looks blah and boring.
So, today I am sharing transitioning the mantel to Winter ideas.
I love to decorate for Valentine’s day too. But it is too early for that. I figured I still have a few weeks before I get out my Valentine bins.
I have a bunch of wood left over from a recent project my husband just did for me. I will be sharing that soon. We had to buy some plywood sheets from Lowe’s home improvement for said project. We had a bunch left over and I told my husband to hold onto it because I can make some cute rustic signs throughout the season. The wood is really cheap too at the hardware store. You can buy a big sheet for around $5.99. I believe you can even have it cut to the size you desire. We have the saws so we just did it ourselves. Or I should say my husband did. I have not ventured into power tools quite yet.
Had my chalk paint on hand
Used black craft paint with a dabber to stencil on the wood.
Added a little sparkle
And have me a lovely Love sign for the winter mantel, and then I can simply transition into Valentine’s decor.
Wintery greens and white pine cones.
Thanks so much for stopping over today.
Just in case you noticed or like the look of the black rustic fireplace you can check out that makeover how to paint your fireplace surround.
If you are in the mood to get a jump start on some Valentine decorating ideas, I have plento of those.
