Decorating the Fantle

Fantle? What’s fantle you ask? Well it’s my faux mantle! :) The little shelf in my living room that I like to pretend is thick and lovely hanging above a roaring fire.. instead it’s a shelf from HobLob above my not even a flat screen television. I’ll take that over nothing!

Since I’m going through a nervous breakdown and painting everything white, I wanted my fall decorations to be lovely whites and creams and less orange and in your face– I’ll save that for Halloween. ;) The best part of this re-do was that it was *Free*

Spray painted pitcher from last year
Chipped frame from the 90% off HL clearance that was sitting in my bedroom
#7 bucket that was previously holding our remote for the television
Milk glass vases & Straw wreath from the Mother. Thanks, Mom!
White pumpkins from last year
FREE I tell you.

Doesn’t it feel good using things you already have? There’s a couple more things here and there I’d like to add around the house but for now the fantle is done, and you know what that means? Time to open the windows, let the cold breeze in and enjoy some pumpkin spice latte, a heaven sent that I was just introduced to.  

 Hello, lover

Make sure you fall on over (bwaahahaha) to Nester’s fall mantle party & The Inspired Room & This Blessed Nest for some more Autumn delishiousness. AND, Frugal Friday. :)… And CSI project
