This last week, we updated our fireplace mantel.
Our mantel use to look like this:
(Sorry, for the ladders in front of the fireplace, but I never took a good picture since I wasn't excited about the fireplace. This picture was actually taken when I was painting the trim in the living room.)
I used this photo for inspiration. I liked how the blogger incorporated wooden letters into the seasonal decorating of the fireplace.
Final fireplace mantel painted. Now time to decorate it.
A closer look at all of the trim that we used.
Jack our elf looked great on our fireplace mantel too.
