Mantle update

This weekend MR.P and I had most of Saturday at home.  It was great. We relaxed, watched the UGA game, and later gave a baby shower for friends that are having twins.  I did find the time to start changing up my mantle.  It's not finished, but it definitely looks much better than before. 



What do y'all think? I'd definitely like to add some different accessories and such, but couldn't really think of anything.  I have a few things I could spray paint and then add some tall sticks in for some height, but didn't really have time this weekend. I'll also add some books for depth.  Maybe stacking them up under a frame and then turning them around backwards just for kicks ;)  I'll keep you updated on what I add!

It looks really cute. Thanks for continuing to inspire me! I tried out your idea of the canister for makeup & hairties in the bathroom. It was perfect!!!!

I think you should stack the books (and even cover them in a cute paper) sideways and place the candlesticks on top for height. I love that new mirror!!

I agree you need some height - I like the idea of books, you could also put two sconces on the wall opposite the mirrors and then do lower accessories as the sconces would give you the height you need. What about something in the middle of the white part of the mantel - a black or ORB something. Good luck - mantels are hard, I redid mine like 10 times!
