So last weeks I showed you our mantel challenge. I couldn’t get it together enough to like it and leave it alone. I tinkered with it this weekend and think I came up with something I like.
It’s wasn’t bad, it just wasn’t right. To dark on the right and not enough height.
I didn’t keep anything from the original set-up but the poster. We had everything in the house apart from the flowers which I pinched from Momager’s garden. Do I like the new set-up better though I miss the Buddha. Maybe it’s just the color of the picture. We love the house numbers and wanted them displayed somewhere in the house. I’ve mentioned how we got them before. The candle was from our wedding (and moved from the bedroom), the vase was a housewarming gift, I made a second plant thing (which isn’t slanted – just the angle) when I was working on our throwdown submission and the guy on a bike is from my first trip to Zambia. It was a gift for our nephew but after I bought it I realized it had sharp bits all over it.
I know what you’re thinking; what’s in the frame? Not thinking that? Well, I’m going to show you anyway.
Yes, something usual. Micah got this in a fortune cookie 4 years ago and it’s been in this frame ever since. I may change up the fabric behind it but I think the fortune on the mantel is a keeper.
What do we think? Bring Buddha back? Keep working on it or leave it alone?
