Along with redoing our TNT boxes, I summer-ized our mantel. I am a huge fan of white so that was my overarching theme. It is still a work in progress, as is everything in my life, but we are thinking about continuing the white frame look all the way up to the ceiling. As much as I loved having our TV mounted above our mantel when we first moved in, it is really throwing a kink into my design plans, so...why not decorate around it? We may try it. Also, those speakers are becoming quite an eye sore, but I have a feeling I won't win that battle given my husband is an audio engineer.
Speaking of white... I attempted to spray paint some mason jars last week.. you must be warned... I am not the best at spray painting and it really erks me that my husband is better at it than me. So I tried it out and man was mine a drippy mess, but of course hubs comes and home and tries it out and it could be in the next PB catalog...not cool. But I got over my jealousy and am using it in my center piece on the kitchen table. What are those gorgeous flowers you might ask? They would be my $5 dahlia bouquet I purchased down at the farmers market this weekend, it was so large I was able to have multiple groupings around the house.
Next project... a burlap wreath..I have only had the supplies for 2 months.. I'll let ya know how it goes.
