Today I’m showing you all my 4th of July mantle. Even though I won’t be here for the next week to enjoy looking at it. I just scavenged around the house for things to throw together to create my mantle. I had everything on hand except my new eagle you will see closer in a minute, and the two little polka dot bowls I found in the dollar section at Target.
This anchor was originally blue and in my oldest sons room, I recently painted it black for his new room re-do. Then I realized yesterday I really wanted to use it in this display so I painted it white. It will be getting painted black again when this holiday is over!
At the center of my display is my large patinaed clock and I hate taking it down so I just made a circle to fit in the center of the clock and printed out a star. I just taped it to the glass of the clock.
This fella came from Ross last week and was marked down to $3.99, he was originally brown but I thought he would look a little more majestic painted white.
This special lady came from Goodwill a while back, it’s actually for Corbyn’s room makeover…he’s collecting weird things and spray painting them. It was green, then I spray painted it white too. I love spray paint!
This is sooo pretty! LOVE the turquoise/aqua mixed in with the tradition red/white/blue theme.
MY favorite piece is the quote….
