happy mantle...again.

Ok readers, sorry to be ummmm super repetitive here, but
I wanted to give my lil mantle makeover a post all it's own...
I wanted to link up with some other blogs and the original mantle
post had a bunch of other stuff too.
So, here's my happy mantle again...



Remember how she looked before: tired and sad?



Using only stuff I had lying around the house, including the old wood door,
I spiffed up my mantle and made it more happy.



Scrap fabric and twine made this little pendant banner.
Love the mix of stripes and floral.


And a few wood frames I spray painted to make them match better.





And that's it! New, happy, summery mantle in about 2 hours.
Yeah for easy peasy projects!!

Have a happy weekend, all!
