Fall Mantel…

I have to say it’s not all that exciting and could definitely be tweaked…a lot.  In my defense this is my weakest of weak spots AND this is the MOST insane mantel to decorate…

This is what is usually looks like…everyday for the past almost 6 years…

It actually didn’t look EXACTLY like this when I started…the mirror was gone so it was literally a blank slate. 

This is what I half assed pulled together…

It’s just kind of…there…

As you can see it’s in a corner with a 4” rounded mantel.  Not a lot of room to work with.  I did, very loosely,  copy cat Modern Jane’s mantel but will say hers looks 300% better than mine…

I’m thinking I will paint the glass white to mimic milk glass, it’s all just lacking color…

And I’m thinking the frame will be in need of a makeover…something to make it pop against the brick… which I am not willing to paint…the brick that is
