So, cruising through blog land you see at every holiday Mantles all dressed up and decked out for the holiday/season. I love all the pictures and framed and mirrors that adorn these walls and LONG to have that in my house. I have a mantle (I know that I'm fortunate because some people don't have any mantle) But we have our TV hung on the wall above our mantle. So the lack of wall space doesn't allow for cute wreaths or old fences or cool things with a lot of height. I posed the question to Jen at Tatertots and Jello and it seemed like a lot of readers were in the same boat as me. I wanted people to show me what they have done to improvise with the space they have.
I didn't have very many Valentine decorations so I did go out and buy a few things to get me going and hopefully will just be able to switch out a few things here and there for each season/holiday.
What have you guys done in the past to tackle this problem (If you have it)?
Here are my Valentine Decorations:
This is my Toy storage. I hate it because it's in my family room and the toys are always out and a mess but it is what it is! My basement is getting finished right now so when that is done it all is going downstairs!
I love this sparkly garland!
View from the fireplace down to the front door...nice dark hallway!
I loved this pillow...kind of that Subway art type thing. It has "Gardening" words on it.
This cage was in the clearance section for 75% off. It has a spot on top to put some sort of knob or finial, I just need to find a really cute one.
So...How do you think I did not being able to have anything really as a center point or main point of interest??
