Summer time: Part 2

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.


  1. Nice! After hanging out with Teecy, I knew there had to be a project in the works.

  2. I just found your blog through a comment on honeysuckle and realized that you live in Lynchburg, VA through your about me! (I LOVE Isabella's too :) I went to Liberty University and graduated in Dec 09 and then lived in the burg till this past May. I just got married and my husband and I moved to NC for his job, but we both love Lynchburg!
