Good Morning Friends!
This is what I've come up with for the fireplace mantle.
It seems that I can't get enough of the "industrial" look these days.
Is this my new direction?
I'm really a girly girl at heart.... frills and such but, not of late. (Hence the ruffle on the first lampshade I shared)......
I drug my 8 year old grandson to Michael's the other day to see what we could find to update...aka... * industrialize* the look.
I had him standing there giving me his input as to which container would work best...it's also known as *torture* from his point of view.
All ending good, he got a trip to Toys R Us for helping.
Here is what *we* came up with!
Peak around the chandelier and you'll get a glimpse of our work.
I think it's much prettier when you see the softness of the other things around the fireplace.....the whole picture. But...gotta zoom in!
The three containers are galvanized with a bit of rust at the top and bottom...and the sweetest little rusty handle. I thought they'd be quite "chic".
We dug through the greenery (50% off I might add... I love a good sale) finding these little bushes....and, they look almost real....even better...... perfect fit!
It needed something more...so, (stealing) removing the MUSING banner I'd made for my guest room... gave it the finishing touch. More burlap....yeah think I have a burlap problem?
When I put the mirror up, the criss cross pieces were plain glass.....well, since I can't leave anything alone, I added the black and white scrapbook paper to the back for more texture.
Just thought you'd like to know.
Work around here is calling.....
See ya later!
