I have no fireplace so I have no mantel to decorate for holidays. Luckily, my beloved piano serves that exact purpose! This year, I chose to decorate for fall in whites and golds.
I got branches that fell from my old walnut tree after a big storm last week. I then spray painted them gold. The pumpkin got a coat of gold spray paint, as well. It had been a pewter colored metal, but since I have had it for a few years, I thought it needed some updating.
I think my favorite part of the "mantel" is the feather print. I found the free feather graphic from the Graphics Fairy, and I love it!
The frame and mat were part of a pair of inexpensive dragonfly prints that I purchased a while ago. The glass had broken a long time ago. I simply pulled apart the old picture and mat, spray painted the mat with Rustoleum's Blossom White and then replaced the mat and the feather print. I did not replace the glass...
I am enjoying the white and gold in the living room!
Here's one last look -
How are you decorating for fall? I'm linking up this "mantel' at the "It's Fall Y'all" link party.
Happy Fall (my favorite time of the year).
