I have been in my house almost two years now and I have never really had mantle decor that I loved, I just kinda used whatever and sometimes it was just completely blank. Probably because that was when it was ugly yellow oak and I just really didn’t want it to be a focal point. Staining everything totally brought new life to the mantle and I knew I wanted to spend a little time/effort/money and get some year round type pieces that I really loved.
Mirror: TJ Maxx ($34.99 on clearance, score!)
Wooden Frame: TJ Maxx, painted ourselves ($12.99)
Wooden Box: TJ Maxx, ($9.99)
White Owl: Had on hand (I think I bought it at Michaels a long time ago but I’m not sure?)
Metal Vases: Walmart ($2.99 each, = $8.97)
Flowers: Walmart ($4.99 each, = 14.97) guys, if you want fake flowers to look real, you just have to get the more expensive ones. Lesson learned the hard way.

So the grand total is $81.91 – my $50 gift card and we spent $31.91!! I am more than a little bit proud of myself, if you can’t tell! Even if I didn’t have the gift card I think that $81.91 for everything on the mantle is pretty impressive considering the size of the mirror!What do you think? What is your design style?
