No mantel to decorate? No problem!



We have neither a fireplace nor a mantel in our home so I'm learning to make do and be creative! This year I used the top of my piano as a starting place and went through all my decorations and started grabbing and placing and redoing. I'm so pleased with the results and it only cost about $3 for some spray paint and $4 for a strand of lights.

    Beautiful , I have candle holders like that on my mantle in brown now that I see yours I think I will paint them white. I never used them much in decor because I have everything in white, never even thought about painting. Thanks for the idea. You did a beautiful job!
