I went on a hunt for a mantle. Priced a few at an antique shop but wasn't willing to pay several hundred dollars, so I waited. Sure enough, I found a mantle shelf at a yard sale for $25.00 and decided to make the 'legs.' I'll give the details in another post. This is the finished results.
The mirror was from a yard sale and hung outdoors for two summers - long enough to get this shabby look. The books were a freebie from DIL B - I simply tore the covers off and the faux hydrangea were a GW buy.
The clock face is heavy cardboard from a clock that no longer worked and the wooden pillars found at a lovely shop that is no longer in business.
I finished the new look with wallpaper on this wall only. I'm very pleased with the results and look forward to decorating this mantle for the holiday season.
