Spring Mantle Take 3!

It was just a couple weeks ago when I started fiddling with our Spring Mantle, and I've changed it yet again! I explained that I wasn't crazy about our big, wooden mirror because I thought it looked too heavy for the feel I was going for, especially because it's hanging over a wooden console.  Too much wood on wood.


Home Goods to the rescue! On Saturday, I popped in and found a large pewterish mirror for just $29.99!  It's an instantly lighter, brighter look.  The wooden mirror was larger overall, but the actual mirror was smaller.  I couldn't even really see my reflection in it.  The new mirror also reflects so much more light from the dining room.



For accessories, I kept the Target runner, and green jug vase with branches, and then added a couple metallic Williams Sonoma cookbooks, the Hobby Lobby bird I spray painted gold, and a vase we got as a wedding gift.  It's filled with wine corks.


I think this Spring mantle will be around awhile:)

  1. I really like this. I was just telling my husband that our mantle needs an update. I have a heavy looking dark mirror also and it is just too dark. I need something lighter. I love the accessories you chose too. I think I'll do something similar!

  2. BIG fan of this change. It's amazing what a brighter mirror can do to a space, isn't it? Home Goods is my favorite place to score them too, always such great deals!

  5. I liked it before, but I LOVE it after! That console is absolutely gorgeous but I agree with your "wood-on-wood" assessment. Once again, Home Goods (my favorite store of all time) comes through in the clutch! :)

  7. I think this mirror looks much better over the console table. It doesn't look as weighed down. Great find.

  15. This is such a fresh look. I love it! I can't believe you found the mirror at such a good price. We don't have Home Goods here for another year. It's killing me! ;-)
