Simple Vintage Christmas Mantle
I know some of you might be getting tired of Christmas decor and probably want to see something else here on the blog, but I just can’t help it. I feel like my brain is completely consumed with holiday decorating right now. Ok, maybe that’s a tad bit dramatic. It’s not completely consumed, but I’d say it’s become an obsession. Holiday baking and eating is also on my mind right now, but that’s another story. By the way, would you guys like to see some of the holiday treats we make this time of year? Let me know in the comments below. OK, let’s move on to today’s post! I’m sharing a simple but beautiful vintage Christmas mantle. This is actually one of my favorite mantle looks ever shared here on the ol’ blog, so I hope you all like it too. It’s so simple and easy, which is the best part. And I just used a few antique mirrors and candlesticks.
This fireplace is on the other side of our front room and it rarely makes it on the blog. I’m not really sure why, because I love this fireplace and painting it was one of the first big projects I ever shared. If you’ve been around that long then BIG HUGS to you. You are awesome. Anyway, we painted it white, to compliment our vintage decor, and I shared all about that process in this post. It was SO easy and I’ve loved it ever since.
The cool thing about this mantel is that I put it together with completely thrifted finds. I found the large mirror in the back for $35 at an antique store. Can you believe that?! It totally reminds me of Anthropologie’s mirrors, which are crazy expensive. The smaller frames were thrifted as well. They had canvas prints in them, so my dad was kind enough to replace those with mirrors. The candlesticks are thrifted too–those were all found at the same antique store. BOOM. Vintage mantle done.
I looooooove these chunky kit stockings and they are SO affordable. And I found those adorable little sheep and bear ornaments at Target for just $3 each!
I don’t share mantle looks very often, but I wanted to share this one today because I’m just loving how those mirrors look with the antique candlesticks. Simple, but it’s such a classic and timeless look. I’ve been so inspired by vintage mirrors lately, I feel like they’re popping up all over Pinterest these days, so I’m tickled pink to have a few of my very own. And you guys should be so proud of me because I didn’t paint them!! I left the candlesticks AND the mirror frames completely alone. Can you believe it? It’s a Christmas miracle!
Thanks so much for stopping by today! I know how busy this time of year is for all of us, so I really appreciate when you spend a few minutes of your day with me here on the blog. It means the world to me!!
