Hey there! It's only the beginning of the week and I'm exhausted already and wishing for Friday. Can you believe we are nearing the beginning of October? I can't! It will be Christmas before you know it.
I finished up our fall mantel/ledge this past weekend. I think I changed it about a 100 times until I was satisfied with it. I tried to use things I already had around the house cause I don't like spending extra dough on seasonal things. First thing I did was top it with a wide plank of barn wood to warm up the ledge and give it a little more depth so I would have more room. Here's a look.....
vintage music magazines from 1936 and 37? Well, I didn't use them in the guest bathroom. I decided to use them here but I didn't want to commit to actually sticking them to the wall, so I picked up 3 foam boards from the Dollar Tree and glued interesting ads from the magazines to each one, then nailed the boards to the wall. The trays are also from the Dollar Tree, but I spray painted them oil rubbed bronze cause it's what I had.
our picking trip. I love the the music ad centered in the frame. I thought it tied in very nicely with the New York subway art also hanging in the room.
