Adding a mirror to my mantel has opened up a new world of possibilities for me, so I decided to try creating a winter look. You may recognize most of what is there…my music-themed projects from my Christmas mantel!
Of course, the garland and lights are gone, as well as the burlap stockings. And my plates are back…naturally!
The sheet music wreath is still hanging over the mirror. I love it! It was a lot of tedious work so I want to get as much use as possible out of it!
The mercury glass candlesticks and the Pottery Barn knock-off music candles are still there, too!
I have also kept the little snow birds, grouping them on some of my silverplate…a porringer and a wine caddy turned upside down to add a little height to the arrangement.
I moved a pair of topiaries from the hutch to the mantel. They were flea market finds…$9 for the pair…whose base was sprayed silver to match my silver and cream dining room theme for Christmas.
Total cost of this new look for the mantel…free! I just reused things I already had! It has taken a while for the neutral colors to grow on me, but I think I am starting to like it. It has a cool winter look that suits the month of January and seems fresh and clean after all of the Christmas clutter. I am sure that my signature Provençal blue and yellow will come back with the warmer months, but for now, I think I’ll keep it this way!
