Back to the mantle.......
|The fishes fit perfectly in our beach house. They belonged to my parents and I always had my eye on them. They did not really fit into my parents rustic style so they were gifted to me : )|
Putting my DIY skills to the works, I gave the vintage book look a try. I took a trip to my local Library and purchased some used books. Each book was around 25 cents! I brought them home ripped off the cover, dipped them in coffee, let them dry, stacked them and wrapped them with twine!
I stuck some sea shells and sea stars in the twine to give them an extra touch.
I scattered the fish and the books on the mantle. The scattered look gave an interesting yet cohesive look.
There you have it, my Fall, Winter, Spring and Summer mantle.
