Valentines Mantel {2013}

I did a little playing with the mantel this weekend.

Just in time for Valentines Day. Clearly I was not on the lovey dovey holiday ball this year. But, it’s still fun to add some pink to the house. I wanted a touch of industrial if I could so Jared helped me make this arrow– which I’ll show in another post.

C for Cupid!

Ombre “art” if you can call it that. More like cut up strips of paper and taped inside a frame. But secretly.. I love it.

The arrow needs to be sanded down, I tried the salt trick and well.. the salt is being a whiny little brat and wont come off– Some way some how, it will look like rust if it kills me. Which it might.

Anyway, this mantel was completely free. Everything I already had and it felt really nice.

Like that little piece in the frame there? Come back tomorrow for the deets on that, it’s so romantic it’s sick.

  3. Looks great! I want to know the deets on that frame. Saw it on I/G!

  4. LOVE! Your projects are always super cute, Rachelle. I featured this one on my frugal lifestyle site in my “Frugal Pin of the Day” post. I pick a cute, cheap or free DIY project, recipe, etc and feature it, and today, I shared your mantle!

    Thanks for the awesome mantle ideas. Maybe it’s time I dust mine off and get some cute displays going like yours!
