This is my fireplace mantel. I tried to get a picture posted for you of the before, Christmas decor but it is over on my son's log-on page and I can't figure out how to bring it onto my account...argggghhhh.
Hubby and I are still wrestlin' over whether to beadboard transform this old, ugly brick or paint or fake stone wall it?? We actually had someone come out and they never gave us the estimate on stoning it, I guess we'll keep our $1,500 it probably would cost.
This is our tribute to Hubby's parents homestead. They live on a Historical Plantation site in North Carolina. That's Papa pulling a wagon full of grandkids, a birdhouse to remind me that Papa helped each of my boys build a birdhouse we have hanging here in Texas, Cotton blooms that I had her send me this Fall and a painting that was done for her.
The mirror behind will be a chalkboard or magnet board when I get to it. The glass is old and pock-marked. MIL gave it to us from their auction left overs so it will be fun to eventually transform it.
Those quilts you can see in the mirror were made by MIL too.
I'm tagging in to TableTop Tuesday at Grits and Glamour today.
Blessings on your tabletops!
