Well now that the Ready 4 Summer party is over, I can finally GET READY FOR SUMMER!
I switched out my mantel decor over the weekend.
I started with my seagrass star basket from Pier One. If you've been with me for a while, you might remember the funny story that goes along with it, and how I got this basket for FREE, and why I can never shop at Pier One again.
I layered it over my painted wood framed chicken wire memo board, to which I added a printable of some lyrics to one of my favorite Beatles songs, "Here Comes the Sun."
Have I reminded you lately how happy I am that I painted my fireplace?
Some dried curly willow in a bottle, next to the basket adds a bit of rustic,
while a few starfish and seashells give me that fresh coastal look that I crave.
(I really need to start painting the backs of things if I'm going to put them up against the mirror...)
I've recently discovered
The small ink bottles, that were a gift, just feed my addiction. Aren't they so pretty?
I'm so glad this part of the room is finished. I'm starting to feel like there is an end in sight for my living room! Although, while I'm decorating in a summery fashion, I'm fearing it may be ready to transition to fall by the time I'm ready to share it with you!
Have you finished your summer decorating?
