eclectic mantel design

We are slowly but surely completing projects around the house and getting things to look how we would like. One particular area I was excited about was our new mantel – we hadn’t had one in either of our three previous houses!

The first photo I saw that was inspirational to me what one I saw floating around pinterest. It seemed to suit the personality of our house pretty well. The thing was, I didn’t have a lot of the items to make this happen. Isn’t that little deer hook cool? And of course, I love the asymmetry.


Enter the next photo that struck me as inspiring. Also quite eclectic in it’s mix of textures and colors but I felt I could pull something together from what I already owned or had bought in preparation for having a mantel.

Here’s what I ended up with. I spray painted two frames that I already had with paint I had leftover from the folding chair redo to bring some pops of color. My bro-in-law did that great macro photo shot (no idea what plant it is!), doesn’t it look awesome in it’s new yellow frame? Then I added the new print I bought when we moved – “Small Homes Grow Tight Families” along with a collage I won from a photoshoot when Jude was 10 months old. Cluster of photos, complete.

And then finally, a smattering of books, my Nana’s crystal vase, two little bud vases I picked up at a garage sale, some greenery and a new print of art that I had been admiring on etsy!

I eventually would like to add a vintage ‘C’ letter to the mix but that will happen when it happens. As for now, I’m happy with the way it has turned out!


There are various reliable online pharmacies. But others aren’t pharmacies at all. Online is a cost effective way to buy medicines. Without fail, you have to check with your pharmacist to see whether one of these medications is a assign choice for you. Viagra is a drug used to treat varied infections. What do you think about “vardenafil vs sildenafil“? What could patients tell a health care professional before grab Viagra? What is the most great information you have to know about ““? The very vital question you must look for is “cialis for daily use“. Remember to diagnose a man’s erectile problem, the health care producer likely will begin with a thorough anecdote of symptoms. There are side effects possible with any type of remedy.

    Very nice! I especially like your family quote, the bookend, and that pop of yellow.
