My Version Of A Beachy Mantel

I mentioned that I don’t often change my mantel, but blogging is changing all of that.  I made a fun sign out of a picket fence for the mantel that you can read about here


I used it for the centerpiece for my version of a beachy mantel.  I would love for my version to be in beautiful soothing colors of whites and blues, but that just doesn’t go with my existing décor.  I always tend to go towards muted colors in the same tone.  I don’t know if it’s my style or how I play it safe. 

I use the same candlesticks year around on my mantel.  I like them and don’t want to permanently change them, but they needed to go with my new beachy look.  To fix my issue I tied twine and upholstery cording around them. 


I used some mason jars and tied fish net onto them and filled them with sand, a seashell and a candle.



I found a pretty boat at TJ Maxx.  It’s the culprit that got my beachy wheels spinning.



I also found a sea fan and a few starfish there as well.






Do you ever branch out of your décor style and give it your own little twist?
