Rustic Fall Mantel with Reclaimed Chippy Wood and Blue Ball Jars

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

    What a great eye! The Ball jars are the perfect way to bring out that tone. Beautiful job!

    I agree. Never liked the color, orange but I have found an alternative...the color coral. Anyway, I just love your idea and I am drooling. LOL! Thank you so much for sharing.
