Rustic Fall Mantel with Reclaimed Chippy Wood and Blue Ball Jars

167K
To complement the stone fireplace in our keeping room, I decorated our mantel in shades of aqua, brown and cream, an unexpected color choice for fall. I created a backdrop using salvaged wainscoting with a chippy painted patina and decorated the fireplace and mantel with a burlap wreath, blue Ball jars, candles, a picnic basket, pumpkins and a vintage yardstick ruler. I think the finished look is warm and cozy, simple and rustic with a touch of sophistication. You can read more about this project on my blog, AttaGirlSays.com

    Love the divagation from the traditional orange and black while still conveying the celebration of the season. Very pretty.
