So I thought I better get moving on taking down summer, but here's one last look at my summer mantel and all the great memories that are still fresh in my mind. Goodbye summer, see you in about 7 months.
Here's my first attempt at my fall mantel
Since my fireplace is mammoth with a ton of red brick, I needed to break it up a bit. Someday I am going to paint my fireplace like Ann's beautiful fireplace. Until then I use these awesome shutters as a back drop from our local architectial salvage yard. I gave them a fresh coat of paint and they were ready to go.
Didn't have to buy anything for the mantel except for the print which costs me $2.99
I took this picture last fall in my back yard and thought it would be perfect in a frame for the mantel. Plus, I've been into "yellow" lately, not sure why but just liking me some yellow!
Are you getting ready for Fall at your house?
Have a great weekend
