Fall Mantel

Hey, how was your weekend? Ours was great – we had a fun family photo shoot (can’t wait to share the pics next month), and I got the chance to work on my Fall Mantle as well. As I mentioned Friday,  I was able to reuse most of my Fall Tablescape materials for the Mantel where they are safe from little hands :)

Once again I went with (shocker) a white neutral theme.

These frames used to be black but I wanted them to look like old barnwood, so I used gray, white, and brown craft paint to get a wood tone look. Then I scraped some off for a distressed look.

Now that I see this picture I realize there is still paint on the glass whoopsie! Once again, I’m the laziest DIY-er ever. I suppose I should have gotten out some painters tape but I’m always working against the nap time clock!

Remember how I spray painted these leaves to give them a little softer look? They are still holding up just fine.

Here is a close up of our fireplace tile. My husband wanted glass tile, and I wanted marble so this was our compromise…I still love marble tiled fireplaces, but this is fun too!

Thanks for stopping by! Later in the week, I look forward to posting my first cooking post. Wow, taking photos of food is waaaay harder than I thought…but I promise the recipes are good :)

  1. Can you please tell me where your fireplace tile is from and what the color is? It is so beautiful!

    1. Hi Megan! It’s just from Lowes :) I’m not sure the color but I was just there last week and they still have it. It’s just in the tile aisle, if you take a pic in otherwise I’m sure they could point you in the right direction!
