My new Spring Mantel




Pin It

I am so happy Spring is almost here!! I'm loving these warm days we are experiencing right now! Of course, I couldn't wait to begin changing things around my house for the approaching season!



Remember the branches I picked up some days ago? They were calling me! "literally", to bring them inside the house from the garage!

I gave them a lighter color by adding water to regular white paint to dilute the color.



But only branches were not enough to decorate the mantel! I found these frames at a thrift store, with the 50% off blue labels... under $5 not bad!





Checking how they would look after removing the previous owners art.....




After some sanding, priming and, spray painting!




They got a new life!



and here you have it, My new Mantel for the season!




Pin It

The black frame and letter G were bought at Michael's.



   Have a great day!

Wow! I love the way you framed the G and I love all the colors together. I was just trying to decide whether or not to keep my old collection of frames that I'm not using....after seeing how your transformed your frames, I am so inspired!!!
