Anywho, over the weekend I was able to sell some stuff on craigslist (don't you love craigslist! People pay you for stuff that have been sitting in your house forever). I knew exactly what I was going to spend the money on. My severely neglected mantle display (please excuse the horrible blurry pics. Once again I forgot to take an actual before pic):
Finally, here is the beautiful display now:
Oh my goodness! I LOVE it! It's my blog, if I want to praise myself, I will ;) Isn't it sooooooo much better?! You know what I love about it the most? The fact that I can change out the fillers in the hurricanes and the candles. This will be great for different seasons and holidays. Big glass containers are great for holiday decor! I am super excited about this. My husband even loved it (pretty good since he was wondering why I was changing it in the first place. Oh silly husband).
So I am thinking that I should make the striped box I did on the top of the mantle a little larger now. What do you think? Follow along for more living room updates. Then a before and after!
