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

    Thanks, @Phyllis M and @Tammy@Deja Vue Designs. I can't seem to get away from aqua in my decor. It's one of my favorite colors. I guess I'll call it my signature!

    I love aqua too. I think it's my version of blue/green...combined into one! lol

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