Room Tour: Our Spring Mantel and Fireplace

I’m loving spring this year, especially when it’s sunny out (although not so much right now, while it’s pouring rain and cold!)

Here’s how we’ve brought spring inside, right into the seating area in our living room.

I love our little boxwood spiral tree – this was $5 on clearance at Old Time Pottery. What a steal! These yellow flower sprigs in my $3 Target Dollar Spot find (or whatever they call it now) bring a pop of color in.

Check out the little vintage cheese boxes. These came from my husband’s grandpa’s farm, or something like that…. We inherited them at some point and they made the move to the new house.  IMG_4976

These three candle stands are finds from three different stores. The tall one is from Goodwill for $2, and was painted using my ultimate favorite $1 paint samples.

The cream one is from Hobby Lobby, and the mercury glass one came from Marshalls on clearance. Overall, these things cost me $18 total – what a deal! During Christmas they’ll hold candles, but for now the raffia balls look like we’ve brought the outdoors in.

And my ultimate favorite piece – a painted bushel basket that stores our quilts. I love this!
