Finding Inspriation

Sitting in my chair, this was my view of our mantel.
You're probably thinking, "Hey, I can't see the mantel!"

Well, it was a wreck so I don't want you to see our mantel. I want you to see the lovely mantel over at Common Ground...

I was really stuck with what to do with our mantel. Seeing hers gave me all the inspiration I needed! 

Here's another photo of hers, in case you're in need of inspiration too...
I have a large brown mirror. I have an old toolbox. I have a boxwood wreath. I'm on it! 

Check back soon for my copycat version. And please be sure to stop in at Common Ground's blog for a closer look at her mantel and a spring tour of her lovely home HERE.

Thanks for dropping by!


  1. I love the simple white look of it. About all I have are the white lanterns, but then neither of our fireplaces has a mantel. We keep saying we're going to put one up, but then I worry about the cat getting up there and knocking things down, she does that when she's bored.

  2. Don't you just love it when you see an inspiration photo and it gets things in gear! It's going to look great

  3. Looking forward to seeing your version. xo Laura

  4. Inspirational indeed, looking forward to seeing what you do with yours.

  5. How fun, Sugar! Can't wait to see your copycat version!

  6. OK, I'll be watching. I have two of those exact lanterns that are on Debra's mantle. I'll be copying that ribbon idea. :)

  7. Funny! I will check back later. xoxo Su

  8. I just love it when we get inspiration from someone else and then you think, why didn't I think of that. Debra has a beautiful home and everything looks amazing.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
