If there is one thing I struggle with, it's my fireplace mantle. I never seem to get it "just right".
As you can see, I repainted the woodwork back to white after having it be Olde Village Pearwood for 5 years. I also added an extra plank of wood to the top so that it gave me an extra inch of width to work with.
After trying several different things, I settled on this look for summer. It's a mix of things from around the room with a splash of color with the candle bird and eggs in the next. I'm still not crazy about the sign above the mirror as it just looks awkward because it is the same width as the mirror, but I'm too lazy at the moment to figure something else out;)
Have a nice afternoon,
