I'm still on the quest to re-do my mantel. I started the "fantabulizing" process this weekend with a trip to Shutters. Here's just a small corner of the mantel. It is already looking more "loved" - amazing what a little greenery and color can do. The planter on the corner will be sprayed cream but not today since its a rainy, dreary Monday. I love the "33" (our house number) because it brings in a little whimsy and more "green."
PS: if you are in need of a mood-lifter this rainy day - head to the Shutters blog. Our customer's home has been featured in designNJ. It will instantly transport you to summer and flip flops.
