Day #3 and mantel #3!
Today is more of a collected look – one where you can showcase a few of your favorite things or pieces of your favorite collections. And it has a vintage feel because of the old window, blue ball jars, old grapevine wreath, old Pepsi crate, and antique scale.
I used my stool again on the hearth (I never knew I was going to LOVE this stool in my house as much as I do when I pulled it out of a dirty old shed at an estate sale. I planned on actually using it on my deck, but it hasn’t made it outside yet!) Topped that with a Pepsi crate filled with a pretty basket with a greenery stem in it and a lantern. On the other side some vintage looking white pillows on top of a basket filled with magazines.
On the mantel sits a vintage looking pitcher filled with faux yellow forsythia blooms, an old grapevine wreath, and a vintage scaled with a cute little bird on top.
On this side I used a set of 3 white candlesticks, a rattan placemat with a white plate, finished with some vintage blue ball jars in front.
The middle display is an old white window with no panes, and mirror with panes in front of that. I hung my DIY J initial wreath on front of that for some texture and interest. This mantel display probably incorporates more yard sale finds/secondhand finds than the other 2 I have showed you – check out the source list below.
And just to show you a little different look – on the hearth here is a large basket filled with blankets and pillows and then the bench on the other side without the Pepsi crate.
