Big Mantle, Big Spring Pop.

Time for a time for a change
 in my livingroom.
  • I took down the tar paper/words above my fireplace.
  • I painted the upper part of the brick above the mantle to match the walls.
  • I added my found objects that I've been wanting to use.
Then just like that - Spring arrived in my living room.

Here is a progress pic, after I had painted the upper brick.

The Cabinet Maker added the ceiling moulding -
This is from the 'free stash' at a garage sale a few weeks ago.  Score!
Pretty fabulous.


 Fishing line:
The vintage frame is hung from the mirror.
The lampshade is hung with an eye hook from the ceiling.

The silver coffeepot, boy statue and Mary
 were my thrift store fines last week.

Decorating co-captian Linda gave me the Tulip tag. Darling. Thank you.
The black cabinet is at the other end of the room.

It was nice to have the bright happy room for the Easter Holiday and company.
Thank you to The Cabinet Maker for whipping up the moulding.

Happy Monday Everyone.
I hope Spring sprung for you too.
