I’ve been overwhelmed when I look at my mantle since the day we moved in, two years ago. The day we moved in all of our house plant ended up making this their home. Slowly I have removed plant by plant spreading them out through the house. Making room for other items that just haven’t found their forever home. I decided that I needed to face my fear and even up the score. Went to my good pal Pintrest for a few tutorials and suggestions and than the hunting began. I figured it wouldn’t be that hard with a last name of Dunn. Pulling some Irish items I already had was super easy. I found some fun wall art that has been in the basement looking for their spot, an adorable art project I did with my daughter when she was little and some other festive knick nacks.
I did leave one plant cause I liked the green and how it hung over breaking the visual line of the stone mantle. From there I just started adding. It’s no materpiece nor will it be featured in any design magazine but I’m satisfied and feel like at least the score is now equal.
