Mother’s Day Mantel With Old Windows

Hi friends, I’ve never done a Mother’s Day Mantel but after making the Mother’s Day Flowers the other day I thought it would be fun to see what I could come up with.
So I played around with it and, you know what……………I LOVE it.
This was pretty fun and easy to put together! I shopped my house, literally I walked around in some of the upstairs rooms and pulled out a few things. I don’t always know how I’m going to put things together. Sometimes I’ll play with things a few things and then go and sit back in a chair and look at it. And then my dog Coco will come up and lick me or bring me her toy to play tug o war… And then I make a decision.
I love Shabby Chic Décor and I love Cottage Style so this is a bit of a mix. Oh and did you see the big new taupe n cream pillow on our big chair?? $4.99 at Ross the other day. Can you believe that?? Big Pillow Score. The smaller heart pillow is my Anthropologie knock off (it was $198 on their website).
I pulled this big vintage shabby chic chippy frame (I found this at a flea marked years ago for $5). I added this framed art of pretty shabby n chic roses inside (I got this at Marshalls about 10 years ago for $10).
I just love the detail on the corners and the chippy paint. Below is the Mother’s Day Flowers I made the other day and I can easily pull the tags off and use this any time of year and change up the flowers, so I love that.
The Old Windows were found at a yard sale last year for $2 each!! Can you believe that?? The black shutter above I have used many times and it’s pink on the other side so I change it up. I hung that pretty sign that says “Happily Ever After” on it. (that was a thrift store find for $2). Below is the little Spring Banner I made before Easter and I just flipped it over. The Candlesticks my Brother and Sister in Law bought me years ago for my Birthday years ago and I adore them. The Candles were found at Ross last year and they are twine wrapped white candles. I love them because they look like burlap. Hey I should try to make some more huh??? …
So I know I called it my Mother’s Day Mantel but I LOVE it and will keep it up for the next month or so. I’ll pull off the Mom tags and then it’s just a great rustic mantel.
Mom’s are wonderful women with the hardest jobs ever so it’s nice to honor, cherish and love them.
Hope you like our new mantel. Do you have anything special you do for Mother’s Day??
Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great day, Lisa with Lisa Walsh Huff Kroll
