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.
