In my last post I showed you my mantel makeover.
It went from this...
I think we all can agree it looks better but it was still lacking.
I thought adding some more greenery might finish it off.
It definitely still needed somethin'.
The day after I posted my mantel redo, Grace at Sense and Simplicity posted her mantel makeover.
She followed some step by step directions from some designers in a magazine.
She posted each direction they suggested.
It was at that point that I realized I had done everything backwards.
I did exactly the opposite of what the article suggested.
So, I took everything off and redid my redo.
and now this...
same exact stuff
just arranged differently
using the suggestions from the article on Grace's blog.
Now I think it's finished. The mirrors reflect the light from the windows
and really brighten the room. It's all light, bright and fresh for spring.
Most likely it will stay this way until Christmas :)
What do you think? Do you think it looks better?
