Rustic Summer Mantel

8:56:00 PM

My summer mantel... 

Brought to you by garage sales, thrift stores and clearance sales...

A tree here...

Some coral there....

A guy named Old Salty stands guard near an old pulley...

Rusty water caps make stands for vintage travel ad candles...

A distressed white swan sits among the rusty pieces, 
 coral and a painted white frame...

Rustic and ready for summer!

  1. I love all of it, but I think the candle bases are my fave.

  2. Your mantel looks gorgeous for summer. I like Old Salty. I swear my dad had one just like that back in the day.

  4. Love the mantel! Don't you love yard sales and clearance aisles! Not to mention a good thrift store! You have done a great job mixing them! I am your newest follower!

  5. Gorgeous mantle display! I love the rusty bits mixed in with the whites. This is something I struggle with but you've got it down. I love the little fisherman guy, he's so quirky and fun!

  6. I love the old pully and the rusty water caps used as candle holders. Very imaginative!
