Good morning everyone !
It started with this
and led to this ( it takes a village )
Well I did it - I worked on a Spring mantel !
Is it nice & Springlike in your corner of the world?
We still have snow - it's rapidly melting but I'd rather look outside and see none at this point -
Spring means everything will start blossoming - including these never ending reno's ( which have kind of been on a stand still the last couple of months ).
I decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon and do a Spring Mantel ( to give me hope give me hope give me peace on earth )
The birdhouses come from the dollar store - cheep decor ( is that witty or what ? )
Now please keep in mind that we are renovating - what you see through the mirrors is an unfinished home - I probably should NOT have used a mirror as a back drop - s.t.u.p.i.d.
Some branches in one vase -
blossoms in another -
a few sprigs of flowers peaking out of the birdhouses
Think I'll just hide it with a butterfly instead
The houses were all dry brushed with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint ™ - pure white
( but wouldn't different pastel colors be pretty too? hmmm there's still the mantel in the bedroom )
and the letters were stencilled on with a sharpie
I'll change the letters up to S U M M E R later on and hang these outside - maybe on my ladder?
or on my ladder arbor?
And then Autumn - with berries
And Winter with icicles
And I'll never have to change the mantel again LOL !!!
Suzan says - John let me know next time you run in the dollar store ?
John says - Well that's unlikely................
Have a wonderful day everyone !
