I decorated the family room a bit for the Summer months several weeks ago and today I am sharing
with you our Summer mantle.
I always have such a hard time changing things up on this huge mantle. It sure is a challenge for me. :)
This is what I came up with this year.
I bought a couple of things, but most of it is homemade or items I already had at home.
On one side I used an old vase and flowers, the glass jars I had for years and a small wooden shell decoration
I found at Hobby Lobby at 80% off. I paid like three dollars for each one.
The little sailboat I made myself since, sadly, all the Summer decor is almost completely off the shelves in most stores.
This was a fun project.:)
For the center of the mantle I made a "Beach" sign.
And the other end looks pretty much the same with the addition of a glass jar I bought at Kirklands also on sale.
I decorated it with some sand and seashells.
I don't know if you noticed the new frame on the left side of the mantle.
It was another Kirklands find and on sale for $20.00. I just couldn't leave it behind.
And the hearth is decorated with two new pillow covers, the lantern my kids bought me for Mother's Day and
the second homemade sailboat.
I couldn't make just one! :)
The rest of the family room is very simple, but I will be sharing it on my next post.
Thank you for your visit!
