I thought it would be a fun challenge to do a collection of posts on decorating. Not whole room renovations mind you, but rather smaller, more manageable projects. First up will be a bunch of ideas for decorating fireplace mantels. So…check back as I’ll be posting a new mantel arrangement each week. I hope these will provide lots of inspiration.
Fireplace Mantel Idea #6- Sailing Away
Another option for an unused fireplace is to turn it into a headboard. A twin mattress and low profile box spring fit the dimensions perfectly. The gingham wallcovering makes the white mantel visually pop while displaying a model sailboat and collections of shells & vintage postcards.
1. Gingham wallcovering in blue/white
2. Model sailboat (similar to those used on ponds at the turn of the century) was a birthday gift to my husband
3. Postcards c. 1900-1950
4. Sea shells
5. Vintage linens & white Matelasse coverlet
The pharmacy brass floor lamp is a reproduction of an antique.
