The living room in our Blue Cottage is coming together. We still need curtains and I’m keeping my eyes out for two small chairs I want in front of our trunk coffee table, but today I finished decorating out mantel.
I used a whole bunch of things to decorate our mantel:
- real pumpkins, big and small
- fake leaves
- a silver cup and tea kettle
- an antique book
- a clock
- 2 ceramic apples
- 2 fall-themed signs
- a fall-themed flag
- a milk glass vase
- 2 metal finials
There are many more pressing things that need to be finished first, but I’d eventually love to encase the top of our fireplace with wood to have a straighter surface.
It’s such a big fireplace, I think it will look great with a chunky mantel.
I’m deciding between white-washing the wood or dark wood, what do you think?
This wooden shovel is from Saturday’s tag sale — I paid $3 for it.
And this is what the whole fireplace looks like.
Do you decorate for fall?
