This mantle was so much fun for me to put together.  I had NO idea what I wanted to do when I started but after I finished my bookcase vignette (you’ll see it in a later post), I had an idea of doing the mantle in a vintage look.

The finished mantle sort of reminds me of something you might see at Cracker Barrel. I’m loving it.

I used a collection of old cooking pieces I had purchased years.

The shutter on the left was salvaged several years ago from our wood pile to be burned. I sanded it a bit to make it more distressed and now it’s a permanent addition in our home.
