I’m always changing things up around our house. Here’s what’s happening on our mantel now — a combination of garage sale finds and good deals from here and there…
I find creating symmetry is the best way to pull together an arrangement of disparate objects. Here are a lot of things from various places (garage sales, Etsy, eBay, TJMaxx) — things that make me happy, that look pretty to my eye.
A pair of cast iron urns are turned into candelabras. To do this, I lined the urns with plastic bags, filled with uncooked rice and stuck in a bunch of taper candles.
I’m attracted to old paintbrushes – I buy them at garage sales and on eBay. I hung one on the corner of my garage sale mirror. The bone necklace is a garage sale find too.
A “LOVE” print from Etsy is framed in an IKEA frame. TJMaxx foo dogs on either side – a well-worn stone from the beach is placed in the center.
The convex mirror is a flea market find.
