So maybe you remember that I don’t have a mantel in this house. Of course, as you know, I am moving at the end of the month (yes, again) and I will have a fireplace. However, the last 4 months I have not, so I created my fake “mantel”. I’m really behind in showing you this… moving everytime you take a breath does that to a person, lol! Nonetheless, I made it before the end of summer and that was the goal here ; ) So here it i:
my summer mantel
It’s technically the top of a dresser, but hey, it works!
What do you think of my window screen… it came with the rental.. hehe! And I’m pretty sure I can take it since the windows were replaced and you can’t use these anymore. Don’t have to twist my arm ; )
My favorite part: The Yarn Pom Pom’s…. and my attempt at an ombre pom pom. Not quite what I imagined, but I didn’t try to fix it either. It works for me! I’m going to try and perfect that though, I’ll let you know when I do.
Those are real sticks on the pom poms. I just kinda stuck the pom pom on top until it stayed. Super easy!
I am loving chalkboard right now! I used some chalkboard paper I got from Pick Your Plum and inserted it into my frame. Try not to dwell on the hideous handwriting. I’m terrible. I always wanted to be one of those people that draw the awesome chalkboard things that you see in restaurants. Guess that just wasn’t my calling ; )
So this is what you see when you walk into my front door…. at least for the next few weeks! I already have plans for my fall “mantel”. I know that was fast right?
Do you have a fake mantel? I’d love to see yours!
