An Eclectic Mantle by Taylor

While at the Raleigh flea market with my good friend Katie a couple of weekends ago, I found some really interesting old frames. They were painted various shades of blue and the paint was chipped and peeling just like I like it! I decided to use them to make over my previously boring mantle (so boring that I didn't even bother to take a before pic- we r talking one picture and some old candlesticks). First, I looked online for some inspiration of what I could put with the frames so as not to overpower my mantle. Let me tell you, it is not easy to decorate a stone fireplace! After many trails and errors (and pix messages to Katie), this is what I came up with! I love how eclectic it looks! That's what's fun about decorating- putting unexpected things together and coming up with the perfect combination.
