Well, I only had about five minutes to work on a summer makeover for my winter mantel. The truth is that I procrastinated until hubby called and said he was on the way home from work. I'm not totally happy with it and it really doesn't look lighter, but here goes...
BTW, can you tell I'm not into symmetry? And it is so traditional! Although I have a good bit of traditional decor in my home, I am also contemporary too...this certainly doesn't show that at all.
edited to add:
I decided to try something else and think I like this better. What do you think?
