My New Mantle!

I have been dying to get this done, but I needed the right mirror. Since I could not find one in my price range, I asked my husband to make me one. I must give him a huge shout out. It was painstaking at times, but in the end it turned out great! I really wanted to do a seashell theme and I actually plan to add and tweak. After all, decorating is a process right? It hardly ever is perfect the first time.

I also think I'm going to distress the beadboard frame a little...that way you'll actually be able to see the beadboard a little more.

Totally neat and very creative. I would never have been able to pull off such a feat. You should really enjoy your new mantle.

You will probably change this a hundred times. That's how I am. They don't call me the queen of tweakin for nothing. Have a blessed day.
