I was stripping the mantle of it's summer accoutrement (so sad!!) to get ready to do a new mantlescape and it dawned on me that it has been a full year since we did the Fireplace Facelift! So I thought it would be fun to visit all the mantelscapes that I've done over the past 4 seasons. Are you game?
The mantle is one of the only places I have to do any foo-fooing in the living room, so it gets lots of attention, and it's one of my favorite things to do (you know this right?:)
So a refresher of where the fireplace began in our suburbanite home. FYI: Click on the links below each picture to take you to the original post for all the deets.
Yikes! Talk about a flashback! This was taken right before we moved in 2004 (we painted everywhere before we moved in). I lived with this wimpy mantel for several years, then finally we tackled it last summer.
